Sometimes learning happens slowly, without us noticing it. In August after I cut CR’s hair Dick took him for a walk. When they returned I was just finishing a sketch of his furniture and CR sat opposite me, very still.
When I finished the sketch of furniture I thought he was sitting so still I could probably get away with sketching him. And the above exchange happened.
I’ve been sketching him so much that he actually expects it now.
And he always enjoys it—I just drew him a little grumpy looking on this date because I was fiddling with a clunkier pen.
And yes, I practicing eyebrow vocabulary on CR because Dick has his eyebrows!
