Keeping the Grands
We sat for Emily and Nick Thursday night and Friday ...It was so very hot, that I introduced them to a 6" plastic pool complete with balls and watering cans. What a SPLASH! Literally! I took a ton of photos of these sweeties as they tenderly tested the water, put only their feet in the 3" of water I put in the pool, splashed and watered themselves, until they finally sat in the remaining water and played! Needless to say I was as wet as they were!
In keeping with my commitment to keep sketching these precious grandchildren of ours, I sketched my husband and Taylor from our trip to visit my daughter two weeks ago, and then combined two photos of Emily and Nick to create this 'sketchbook' style rendering.
I hope that by this time next year, I'll be closer to rendering the grandchildren's faces!! LOL
