sketching trip

What I see, looking Down, originally uploaded by wildjinjer.

I was feeling kinda blue today, so I took a walk with Amelia to cheer me up.

We stopped at a little neighborhood parklet, and I sketched things while she slept. Soon enough, she woke up, and was very keen to examine her surroundings. It was such a lovely excursion, I'm thinking of trying to get out and sketch a little every day. I have such a hard time building good habits like that, but I'll give it a go...

Here's a little sketch of Amelia in her front pack. It's sort of deceptive, because I couldn't actually see everything in this sketch all at once--I had to look from side to side, squashing my chin and craning my neck.
