Seeing What’s There

18 Jan


Husb and I are babysitting three little relatives having a sleepover. Loads of pancakes made, corn popped and films on DVD stacked up ready. It’s a good opportunity to practice drawing young heads. I’ve long been of the opinion that children have alien heads; little tiny nose squished onto a little tiny face squashed onto an enormous head. With massive eyelashes.

I’ve been trying to draw my little niece for ages, but I still can’t get the proportions right. I’m getting there but still a way to go. I just can’t believe what I’m seeing, can’t accept the impossibly tiny chin and unfeasibly huge eyes. It just doesn’t compute. More practice needed. I drew this with a graphite pencil into my A5 Tate Gallery sketchbook.
