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.
