All in a Morning

I keep a sketchbook as a way of remembering and understanding. This morning I sat and sketched four relatives, squishing them all into the same sheet of paper, not caring too much about the impossible overlapping of the space and people. It is a collage of people, moments and feelings from the last day of our family reunion. The two men were working on a puzzle, my sister-in-law on her needle work and my sister was sharing a story. I did not quite capture how pleased we were to be there together, perhaps because I put too much on this one small sheet of paper. I continued using strong reds and blues for the skin tones and just hinted at the color in the clothing. And I am more comfortable with using a range of values on the skin. I am glad I was able to capture so much of our reunion in my sketchbook.
