I finally got to draw Grisalba, the beautiful server at La Casita. I've always wanted to sketch her because of her fabulous hair and exotic features, but busy waitresses don't have time to sit still for a sketch. So, I got her a gig as as our first model for the new Monday night figure-drawing group at Studio 106. Since she had never done this before, we couldn't believe how flawlessly and elegantly she sat for 3 hours (with breaks at 20 minute intervals). A natural!


  1. Yes, it's fabulous! great light. And line quality. New Ahab?

  2. Your sketch is beautiful and simple with lots of character

  3. Thanks, ladies. No, not the new Ahab. Just the old Lamy - plus some Pentel brush pen.
