HUMANS AND HOW THEY SPEND THEIR TIME - The Slide by Fran




We could not spend Easter with the grand kids this year but their Mom sent some really cute photos.  After the morning egg hunt they went to a play park.  I loved this photo of Mom and the kids sliding down a sort of strange looking slide but it looks like fun.

I tried a quick sketch like so many of the great ink drawings I have seen other artists on this site do, but quick sketching is not my forte.  Also all that strange architecture was difficult to navigate not knowing how it was
really constructed.

Anyway, this is what some people do!

  8. I don't know how you can believe that quick sketching is not your forte. This is fantastic and it has all the liveliness that a quick sketch gives and the feeling of a fun time. I thought your line work showed the shape and direction of solid items really well. I'd love to see more of your quick sketches.
