Summer sketching

I've been practicing my drawing from observation (rather than drawing from photos etc)... It can be hard as little babies are always on the move (apart from naptimes as you can see below), but I find drawing from life produces images with a lot more energy, you just have to be quick to capture it!

Ezra sleeping, again

Yes, here is another drawing of Ezra. I don't know if anyone's thinking "come on, draw something different for a change"... but it just comes naturally at the moment. He's the focus of my life right now and he's changing all the time. You have to be engaged with whatever your subject matter is and I really am, I couldn't be more so. I'm truly fascinated by all the little things he does and how quickly he learns about the world around him.
