Accumulated Sketches

The subject matter is pretty limited right now. Maybe in a few weeks I’ll have more opportunities for photos and drawing, but on the other hand it’s a perfect opportunity to stretch my comfort zone by trying to draw a wriggly baby. So here’s what I’ve roughed out in the past couple of weeks:

Even asleep, he’s often only still for a few minutes at a time. Today I tried while he was awake:

Not a likeness, exactly, but I’m happy with the general babyness and expression (which is now becoming rather disgruntled since he’s over there and not over here where he thinks he should be…).

    Those are so sweet, Julie!

    I love it! You’ll have many a terrific keepsake for when he’s older. More than just the photos – these will be wonderful in 20+ years and will make you happy just to look a them.

    Oh for the ability to draw!

    These are absolutely gorgeous. Little fuzzy wuzzy, here’s a virtual hug! You have so much talent, Julie. Keep them all in a book, and it’ll run to volumes by the time he’s grown up. Much better than photographs.

    I agree with Retriever and Teresa — those are great memory makers.

    Precious. I see the arm chunk is coming along nicely. 🙂 I agree with retriever-you have boatloads of talent.

    Nothing wrong or limited with this subject matter! Wonderful, some of the best drawings of yours I’ve seen I think, and just an excellent thing to do.
