I guess I’ve never outgrown playing with dolls. Here’s one of the rubber babies and a strange stretched-out short-eared rabbit—giving each other the once-over. I find children and babies really difficult to draw—the proportions of the small face with the large head are so different from those of an adult. I’ve decided I’m not necessarily getting better at drawing but I am getting really good at erasing!

    I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s a lot of un-drawing that occurs when we draw. Trying to figure out what to draw, what to use, rejecting ideas and then yes, of course, the erasing! Still… wonderful sketch, love the look you captured on the rabbit.

    the rabbit reminds me of my late lamented beagle. He’d lie on the floor exactly like that and look at people – especially approaching small people – in exactly that way. Know what you mean about drawing kids & babies btw – it’s really hard to override what we think we know and draw what actually IS, which is why a lot of portraits of kids are vaguely creepy.
