Learning To Draw


A bit of a flat old week here. But what made me smile and what i am most grateful for is when, out of the blue Riley started to draw people! It was as if it had happened overnight, he had never drawn anything like it. I knew he was over at the chalkboard, then i heard him muttering 'eyes, mouth... curly hair..' I went to further investigate and to my surprise saw a little person, i couldn't believe it. One day he was drawing circles and squiggles then next it was us, he drew our little family, as well as an octopus and a yellow sun. I am oh so proud! I think this little guy is pretty ace!









I am very excited to be joining with the lovely Maxabella once again for this weeks gratefuls.

What are you grateful for?

Hoping you have a great weekend.

  5. that is amazing! that first drawing reminds me of our art teacher in primary school (i was maybe 9 or 10) talking to us about portrait drawing and the different stages of learning when we start recognising what goes into a face and how to represent that on paper.. so cool! i also love that he was muttering eyes, mouth, curly hair. so sweet. x

  6. I smiled reading this. My little one has just started drawing people in the last couple of days too and I had the same reaction - ran to see if it were true and sure enough there I was in all my round stick figured glory.

    I love the first photo - it looks like he is standing back to admire his work - I think that's pretty ace too :)

  9. That is fab - what a great series of photos to have. My 8yo is all about art and I remember that time when she was little and watched the progression between ages 2 and 4 - it is awesome to watch.
    I just love that first photo!

  22. He's so young to be adding that sort of detail. The round body and even hair! Very ace, I'd say!! x

  23. Oh that's so cool! Bubble has a chalkboard too but we're only scribbling at this stage... despite my artistic efforts ;o)

  24. Oh, I so get your excitement over this. (And they are pretty fabulous people too). Ella has just progressed from the potato-looking people to now having bodies AND heads! It's such a thrill for me to see. x

  25. It's such a buzz to see that development in them. I feel the same each time I see my toddler progressing in her drawing skills too. She's not at little people yet but if last night's effort is anything to go by, it won't be long.
