Drawing Flowers

 Finn is so fascinated by robots and machines it is his main focus when it comes to drawing. We have sketchbooks full of elaborate robots and machinery which come with lots of descriptions and stories.
Today at preschool he was asked to draw a flower, and it was difficult for him to draw a flower as it was (without adding wheels and cogs). So we set about this afternoon focusing on drawing flowers, in it's true form, looking at the details and shapes.
So here we are- a beautiful flower with not a button or wheel in sight. A breakthrough in our little household.

Working from home..

Trying to work from home is never easy with two small children, but I've been trying to get them involved in my illustration project by giving them their own drawings to work on, and allowing them access to my watercolour paints and pencils.

It's a lovely feeling all working quietly and being creative together.
