I am posting at the end of the day so I hope to do this quickly and then head to bed. I spent the day visiting my sister and her son and 5 of his kids came up to visit. I don't get to see them very often so it was a fun day.
I find doing portraits of children really hard. Usually they come out looking much older than they actually are, and these 4 are no exception. The kids were painting at the kitchen table and they wanted me to sketch them. First I sketched Lou while he was painting. He is only 4 and this came out looking a bit older...he is also much cuter!
Then I sketched Joe, who came out looking more like his older brother than himself.
Next Katerie wanted to be sketched. It looks a bit like her but older.
This attempt to paint Justin didn't go well. I don't think it looks anything like him and it makes him look about 17 and he is only 9.
The kids had fun posing and for the most part sat pretty still.
Goodnight! I'll be back tomorrow to view blogs.
