Drawing the Line
"Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere."
~ GK Chesterton
Dear readers: the next time you decide to draw someone (be it friend, lover, family member or perfect stranger) while they are cooking a meal, DON'T DO IT. IT'S A TRAP!
I love my husband, and he insists that he tried to stay still for me. However, when we agreed to a sketching session in the kitchen, I had no idea how hard it was going to be to capture his likeness while he worked. It was a good challenge, though, I must say -- especially for someone who hasn't sketched from life in some time. But still... save yourself some grief and just pose your subject holding a spatula or something.
... just for future reference.
My wonderful man, making me his Famous Spaghetti.
My sleepy cat, Simone.
