The Slide

This morning I sat and did thumbnail sketches of children and their families on a playground. Capturing the differences between child and adult in a small thumbnail took significant effort and made me glad I was sketching in pencil. I was fascinated by a child looking with hesitation at the steps up to a slide and by her mother looking at her child and did a very quick sketch in color of the two. The child never went up the ladder and the mother stayed by her side, neither encouraging nor dissuading her child. Later I tried to redo this sketch and add a better slide. I did get a better slide but was not able to replicate the body language of the child and mother.
