"the first three" March 2010
Lotte, 5½ - waving, my little social butterfly, and holding her paper and pencil, an artist in the making.
Duder, 17m - with his lighter hair, finger in mouth, patiently waiting to be nursed with his blanket in tow.
(Yes, I still nurse. I went 18 months with the first two, one month to go with him)
Keola, 3½ - my rambunctious little guy, lovin' his karates.
Took me days. I don't usually draw hands but I love how they turned out. No mouths, though.
Lots of shading, especially in the hair. And yeah, mechanical pencil, weapon of choice.
Note: Ignore the fingerprints and such; they enjoy it.
