Lapin Visits New York - May 24, 2013

Veronica sent a message that Lapin was visiting from Europe.  She suggested anyone who could make it should meet at the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park.  Great location but a terrible weather day.  It was very cold, windy and raining.  Not the ideal day we'd all hoped.

Bethesda Fountain in the rain.

Lapin arrived with his wife Isabelle and their lovely daughter Louise.  
Although we'd already done a few sketches 
it was easy to convince us to shift our sketching to the Museum of Natural History - 
a short walk.  
We agreed to go the dinosaur section on the fourth floor .

 A small crowd watched Lapin sketching. T
he woman on the left photographed his work in progress.

By mid-day it was nap time for  Louise, who fell asleep with her little bear.

It 's hard not to notice when you're sketching at the museum that there are all these wildly different forms, but when you get right down to it, it's mostly the same anatomical structures, just formed into different shapes, sizes and weights.


  1. Sorry the weather didn't cooperate by the fountain, but the sketch looks good washy. lol Great sketches from inside of all the creatures. I hope Lapin posts his sketches too.
