vege garden

I had a lovely time today sitting with my baby in the garden. He was playing with the wheels on a big truck, so I thought I could sneak in a few sketches. Of course as soon as he saw I was doing something other than sit and play with him, he decided that he wanted to join in! This cut my sketching time to 4 minutes again. I coloured it with watercolour after he went to sleep.

Amazing what you can do with a baby at your side.

I need to practice those quick sketches.

What a great quick sketch. Good that you take the few minutes available to do it.

I love your sketchbook work, the loose n quick, take it easy style has such appeal. Both coloured and uncoloured look great.

Ah yes, I remember all too well the inquisitiveness of babies/toddlers. Great job on the sketch!
