Gardens & Parks, Wonder Years, by Arnoldo L. Romero

Just in the nick of time, before the new theme is up, I'm posting a quick marker sketch of the granddaughter of a friend of mine playing at a small water garden.  I love how the little things we take for granted sometimes are such objects of wonder to small children.  We could learn so much from them.  Anyway, I think it would make a great pastel or watercolor too, but I'll definitely need to work on her proportions a little more.  Blessings!

  1. This is a great sketch of the little girl in the water garden. You are right that it would make a nice watercolor or pastel!

  2. Very sweet! I have a very hard time drawing children, especially my own grandchildren. They always look way older in my drawings! I think you nailed it!

  3. A very pretty picture, Arnoldo, it would be so lovely as a card. I find children hard to draw, but you have captured her so well.

  4. This is such a beautiful sketch Arnoldo. It would make a terrific card some day.

  5. You've done a lovely drawing of this child, Arnoldo! I can definitely imagine it as a pastel.
