Family Portraits

'Little S' caught me by surprise last night and asked me to draw his portrait - just like that! I have drawn him before, but only one very quick portrait, but he obviously remembered this. OK, I said, it's not often someone offers to sit for me so I had a quick go - he didn't sit very still and was watching something on the TV at the time. Afterwards he said "now I'll do yours". So here are the two drawings side by side - quite a fun snapshot in time. He decided to add the wine bottle and glass afterwards - not sure what that says about me - Hic!

What a great way to spend time with your children, drawing eachother. Sounds like so much fun!

This is so touching! And it's a fabulous piece of art, you should frame both portraits and display them in your home!
