Daily Life, school, by Elaine (jaguarish)
This is the school my kids attend, and I drive them to and from school every day (because in Australia, there are no school buses, and I don't think my kids are old enough to go on public buses by themselves). I have started dropping my kids off in a quiet street near the back of the school, rather than brave the crazy scene at the front of the school. I think as the school grows it is getting crazier and crazier! So I had time to relax and make a sketch of the school. I only pencilled in some shapes lightly and had to wait until much later in the day to add the watercolour but it seems to be recognisable anyway -- some of my daughter's friends recognised it as they watched me paint it. I was trying to use deep blue for the shadows but I think maybe this time it didn't work...
