This week in class we’re working on sketching hands. I’m really enjoying these exercises. Learned that hands are the same size as the face…who knew? That explains one reason why the hands in my drawings often look odd.
As a child we would have a huge family picnic on Mother’s Day every year to celebrate my Grandma’s birthday. My folks and another aunt and uncle along with my sister and cousins would go to the park early in the morning to stake out several tables for our large family. We’d have a picnic breakfast, then wait for all the others to join us later in the day.
We spent many happy days at this park eating potluck, playing softball, chatting and hiking. Fond memories all.
This sketch is of the children’s area of the park today. When I was a kid, I remember big swings and a tall slide that were tons of fun instead of this jungle gym.
