The apple of my eye





















I try to observe and draw my little girl when I can though time passes by so fast in family life. I love drawings of children at tables, eating, drinking or playing. There is a vulnerability, they are tiny and everything else is enormous!  I think John Burningham did this well and I am recalling to mind EH Shepherd with Christopher Robin. Just lately I have been enjoying the work of Rebecca Cobb. I have been reading her book 'Lunchtime' to my daughter. Her drawings of tiny ones capture the essence of being small so beautifully. A truly lovely book. These are some drawings I have made on our travels out and about.
