Sketching at the Senior Center

We spent a day doing eyes.

Our brush painting instructor was going to have her class cancelled at the Senior center, so she asked if anyone would like to join.

 Of course I couldn't say no ... so I have been going to the Senior Center for the last few Wednesdays drawing animals.

She taught the basics of shading

We started with the basics of drawing, spent a day on eyes,  then all drew a rabbit from a photo she provided. 

Next we brought in sketches of our own animals and then learned to translate that into a watercolor.

We sketched an animal of our choice - I did Snicks

She had us all do a rabbit together

Snicks is NOT this fat .... yet ....
It was quite different doing watercolor with a Chinese Brush Painting brush -- but I am delighted with the results.

Cat, I am jealous. I wish I had a class nearby that I could join.

Love your rabbit and your Snicks,

Oh my stars, Cat. This is just divine!

If I have that cat picture, I would frame and hang it - it looks just like my cat (especially the fat part).
