Bath-time and using photography

bathtime
This was quickly drawn from life. The toy sailing boat in the background is what Robin uses to teach Xavier the parts of a boat. He can identify rigging, mast, forestay, boom, keel, mainsail, jib, cockpit, bow and stern. Pretty impressive for a four year old, don’t you think?
It is such a a struggle trying to capture a moving subject matter. And sometimes it really is worth taking advantage of the moments that only photography can catch.
To see a more delightful picture of the same subject matter (using photographic reference), look here.
Since the older picture we have had a sparkling new tiled
white bathroom installed. Worth every penny – the depression I felt as I entered the mouldy damp carpeted dusty pink bathroom gone forever.

You little boy might have been handy when I was trying to draw boats yesterday!
Hey, does your guy wear his glasses in the bath? To find the soap?

I went back to see the other picture
which is a treasure--Robin's open
mouth, the bright goldfish spoon and Xavier's laughter. What a treat to see the two together. Someone mentioned that a booklet of such drawings would be a wonderful gift for Robin (and I think also for Xavier).

Both of these are delightful drawings! Yes, I agree, a book of these drawings would be a treasure to both/all...

You should see the little puddle of water we have these days! Lovely sketch and the other one is wonderful.
