Saturday Sketch: Babies

Welcome to this week's Saturday Sketch!

I talked about the Impressionists a bit on Thursday, so I wanted to do an Impressionist inspired drawing for today.

Since many of the Impressionists painted/drew children, I took the opportunity to draw my child. I also mentioned Mary Cassatt in my last post, and she is famous for using children as her subjects.

I had to draw from pictures since Everett is a mover and shaker and will not stay still long enough even to take most pictures.

The Impressionists often drew on tinted paper and added highlights. I think that really added to these sketches.

I don't want to get all cutesy and start drawing babies and puppies. But this was fun.
