Portrait of a sitting child.....what no horse?
This is somewhat off piste on my usual post, so apologies. If you have been following you will know I am working on a bigger horse painting at the moment, and I am not the sort who has a few paintings on the go at one time, I'd much rather give my creative energy and time to one piece, especially when working large. So as a little light touch creative detour I thought I'd introduce my Petite Ballerina - my young daughter - doodled in a ruled note book in between ballet and swimming lessons at the weekend.
I doodle a lot like this, but haven't found a way yet to mesh it in with my horse art so that it doesn't wind up looking like a piece of clip art! It will probably re-surface in some way or another as it comes very naturally to work in this way.
Next time I pick up a pen to sketch one of my kids I'll be sure to pop them on a horse so it's a little more relevant to my blog topic!
