The entire flock


I finally have an opportunity to post all the other photos from a week of classes I taught last term when we got to sketch live baby chicks.
Harriet and Abigail seemed to enjoy their first art modeling gig. 
I knew we wouldn't have such a privilege of live models  in every class, but I think the ones my students did from photos turned out very well indeed!
What's even more impressive is that all these are 5 minute sketches.
I know because I timed them. 
Congratulations, everyone, on sketches you can crow about!

Now if this doesn't inspire the rest of you Sunday Painters, I guess it's time to go bowling.

    1. Will do, Tina. :) These two were particularly sweet. I got a photo from Jody and they are tripled in size now!

  2. It looks like they mastered the art of 5 minute sketching!

    1. They sure did! Some really only needed 2 or three minutes, depending on the complexity of the sketch. It's a good exercise in distilling the subject.

  3. Oh how much fun is that! And what a great challenge. :-)
