Home interior, breakfast, by Elaine (jaguarish)

This week in the Urban Sketchers group, the theme is "Typical Day" and I sketched my son at breakfast in his navy puffy jacket, reading "Secret Agent Mummy" and my daughter reading her e-book on an Adobe e-reader.  The chair at the end of the table is "Grandma's chair" with a special back cushion for my mother in law.

I thought this would be an easy sketch but despite intense focus on his book, my son shifted and moved endlessly!

The bottom half of the page is also for "Typical Day" where I sketched a view at lunchtime.


  1. Boys always fidget - considering that fact Elaine, I think you did a splendid job of sketching him. I also love the style you used for these paintings.

  2. Well done! Story comes through loud and clear!

    1. Thanks Lynn, I found the book title quite amusing. :)

  3. Nice sketches,Elaine. You did well with your moving model.
