Trying Hard

22 Oct


Sprog-sitting my adolescent great niece today and I get my money’s worth by making her pose for me. I find it very hard to draw kids – they have weird scrunchy faces in big heads (that’ll make me popular LOL) but the only thing to do is try harder and practice, practice, practice. The one on the RHS is the last one I drew and probably the one that looks most like her, but they all have elements of her. Hooray for laptops – kept her relatively still and quiet for ages. Better than bribing her with chocolate. There’s also the little tinkly bell attached to my lovely purple silk recycled sari sketchbook, drawn with my Pilot V5 – it sounds so macho doesn’t it? Like a jet engine 🙂
