Selfies and Others, "My Family", Lynn Cohen



On our recent road trip to Portland where we visited our son and his wonderful wife, and two of his three children I drew every day. I drew with my three year old grand daughter who told me who to draw. Here is a two page spread of drawings of the family. Top: husband, soon to be 21 year old grand daughter, She and her man friend, my dear daughter in law, and the baby of the family. Bottom: my husband reading a book.

A mix of water soluble colored pencils, ink, and watercolors and markers. And a lot of fun!

Three more days of "Selfies and Others" and then we are on to drawing flowers!
We need more suggestions please for future themes ... We have run out so make suggestions or I will have to do it all myself! I like the group input here! Thanks, Lynn

  6. Lynn I love these pages. Your use of colour has become really striking in the last year -- and composition on the page! (Sketchbook Skool influence, no doubt!)
