Gracie Asleep. Sepia pencil, carbon pencil, wash; 7 x 11", by Tracie Thompson
Sketch based on Gracie. Ballpoint and watercolor, 8 x 11", by Tracie Thompson
This, for me, is one of the joys of tending my friends' animals: I get to use them for art models. Gracie's human isn't home yet, and I can't wait for her to see these, particularly the pencil/wash drawing at top, which (unlike the ballpoint sketch) truly looks and feels like delicate little Gracie.
