Vivienne sketches

Vivienne sketches

My granddaughter is a pure delight to watch and to draw. Sadly I don’t do that enough. The other evening we visited, this time with sketchbook. First sketch she was asleep and I was so focused on her head (fascinated by what must be going on in there I guess) that I failed to take into account her tiny hands which I ended up drawing in after. So much for good composition! The second was a quick sketch when she woke and before we left. She is absolutely attentive to everything around her, which I know is not unusual but fascinating to watch never the less. Family commented that I made her look like an old man but to me I think that I caught that gaze of wonder. Must do this much more often.

    Thank you for your kind comments Sadami. I'm simply someone who struggles to get on paper what my eye sees and my heart feels. As we all know, it's not always easy. Your comments make the struggle worth it. thanks you.
