Baby time






Nope.... not another baby...I am getting too old to chase a new one, never mind running after Miss Lily, a fourteen month old. I am talking about my freshly done sketches of kido stuffs. My kind colleague just gave Lily a nice sweet pair of shoewear from England. They are a bit too small for her so I am returning them to my colleague but I can't help myself sketching them in gouache on my homemade brown paper bag sketchbook. Enjoy.

I just love baby shoes and how pretty they are these days! Love the colors splattered here! Intrigued, what is a brown paper bag sketchbook???? hope you are happy and busy with those little girls!

Thanks Marta. Brown paper bag sketchbook, is made from supermarket brown paper bag or sometimes people call it, kraft paper. I am sure there are some kraft paper sketchbooks in the US. The brown paper is not archival though but it is fun to play with gouache, cp, and pastel alike.

What a shame they don't fit, mind I think they are too pretty to wear. Great drawings!

Thanks Sue. One day I hope to get to the UK to buy the cute shoes myself..

I just love how they put so much detail on the bottoms of the shoes. How cute!
