Another month almost over and another sketchbook of topic drawings almost completed!
Petit four means little oven in French. These small cakes were so named because they were made in coal-fired ovens after the larger cakes were baked, when the ovens had cooled down.
Yesterday, I went to a dairy goat farm near my town to make some sketches related to food, different from anything I'd done so far. Celebrity Dairy makes some of the best cheeses I've tasted anywhere. There are 120 baby goats now at the farm, from one week old on up. The goats are more adorable than you could possibly imagine. Their little wobbly 'mehhh mehhhs' tugged at my heartstrings. It was SO cold, they were shivering and calling for their mothers. So was I.
You can tell I've never drawn goats before. These early sketches make them look like llamas, like big Bambis, like...funny-looking, goatlike creatures. But! I'm going to get better--- I'm going to go and draw them often over the next months. Fun!
