On a cold and rainy Sunday, it was heavenly to draw my daughter K, just back from an almost three week trip to India for the international public health agency she works for. She becomes the latest face in the 101 Faces Project. K can't sit for me as often as my daughter C, but she also appeared here and here. You have to click on those 2005 thumbnails to see the complete sketches.
Yesterday morning, I sketched a vase of tulips in the kitchen. The flowers had seen better days, but the configuration of stem and fallen petals reminded me of one of those carnival rides in which the seats are on long spokes that go up and down way too fast. In a parallel, Scandinavian universe, Nina has recently posted a sketch of aged tulips. Hers look positively perky compared to mine!
