Cody sleeping

My daughter called early this morning asking if I could watch Cody.
He was sick with a cold, and couldn't go to the daycare.
Sure! I love watching my grandson. I read storys, he watched batman,
and soon feel asleep on the couch.
Prime time to do some art! so I sketched him while he slept. I'm loading
this up just in time, he's now awake.
charcoal on gessod' board 5"x7"(he's a cool lil' guy, I call him Bud!)

What a great sketch, and a great opportunity for a live model!
Let's keep doing the trip!

It's a beautiful drawing, Bill~! I love the shape of his little socks. Glad to see your work again and what a wonderful subject! ♥

Thanks Judy! This is the only time he keeps still long enough to get something down! This is the year of doing the trip!

Thanks Cynthia! Good to hear from you! I think I found a wonderful subject too! Thanks!

Celeste! Thank you! This lil' guy was sleeping
good, I wanted to draw that!

Thanks Gilberto! I pay him in cookies and milk,
and that too is another story!

Thank you Jane! turns out he has two ear infections & a cold. I will be watching him afew more day! :)

what may have taken you an hour or so to sketch down will probably be one of his most valued treasures that he will keep with him his whole life. The picture my grampa sketched of me while I was sleeping, he will tell his grandkids. Im happy to see this.

Bill, this is great! I love it! And Wes is right.. this is a treasure - keep it and give it to him when he is older. He is adorable, and I think you must have captured him really well.
Beautiful job!

Thanks Wes! Cody as a grampa, now I hadn't thought of that. Hmmm:)

Hey Deb, Thanks! With Stape posting about Ingres, I wanted to do some sketching, or line drawing. Stape is a strong influence to me and my art.(I want to make a better picture!)
