sketching little boys playing football isn't easy!
Sketches of Sam playing football - from photos, he moves far too fast for me to attempt sketching this from life without a lot more practice! Biro in Moleskine sketchbook
I definitely need more practice. We had a family get together in Bourton on the Water, in the Cotswolds. A beautiful place but very very busy. The men and Sam played football on the Green by the stream and I got loads of great photos but the movement was too fast for me to try sketching from life. I need a lot more practice.
These started off a bit cartoony as I was thinking about making him a book about the day and I'm not quite sure where they ended up!
Sketching children isn't in my comfort zone and as I had 2 daughters, sketching little boys is a new area - clearly needing more practice.
