Mother and Child Drawings

Last night at Studio b we had a special treat.  First, I must tell again about a few months ago when we had the rare pleasure of drawing from a pregnant model.  Last night Edna, the very same model, brought her new baby daughter, not even 3 months old yet, to model with her.  It was amazing drawing the baby before and after birth.  And she made such a good model!  She was already experienced.

The other amazing aspect was how much each student captured the mood and atmosphere.  With all the different styles the artists interpreted the scene, there remained a constant: the bond between mother and child.  In each drawing I saw as I looked around the room, everyone had captured that bond.  Here are my drawings:

Prints of these, as well as any of my art, are available.  Please contact me if you are interested!


  1. Fantastic drawings, Heather, and knowing that you did these with such accuracy and emotion despite how fast the poses were changing. You had finished drawings while the rest of us were still trying to figure out how to make marks on paper. The last two drawings are absolutely amazing. Thanks for sharing! And for giving us so many tips on drawing children and babies.

  2. I love the second to last, and the tickle one.
