EVERYDAY Sketches




For a while now i have been trying to draw immediate sketches of the subject that take minutes...

This is a series of four or five pen and ink sketches which i do mean to color sometime in the not to distant future!! ....

each of these sketches of a kid probably took 2-3 minutes..they were very still and totally absorbed in thier work.....they were hmm willing subjects...and i was supposed to be watching them...well you definitely do when you draw them...and they did not know i was drawing them...usually the kids will catch on but not this time...to absorbed in thier work...and thats a good thing!!!

sorry its a little crooked...guess i should have scanned it..

You are getting better and better at this, Maggie!

Great, I love the immediacy of these sketches. Though how you manage to get kids to sit still for 2-3 minutes is beyond me!
