It’s painting night in the Sketcher household. The twins love to get the paints out, here are our collective works of art 🙂
This is a wee sketch showing the twins pram, fully loaded with framed prints (in a bin bag to protect from the showers).
We were all on our way down to the Haven Cafe in Newhaven, to replace a sketch that had sold, and to enjoy some delicious coffee and cafe.
You should head down there and try the coffee and cake yourself.
Breakfast time at the Sketcher household and today it’s mashed banana’s on toast for James and Zoe. A favourite with the twins and it wasn’t long before it was all eaten up!
What a lovely morning it is in Granton today, enjoy your weekend everyone, and your breakfast!
Sketching with the twins this morning, we have a new pad and big fat wax crayons, which appear to be quite tasty to 14 month old twins! This is James’ and Daddy’s hand outlines.
The morning seemed to fly by today: Babies wake up. Babies having a cuddle on the mat with a few toys. Babies seem happy, time for a quick sketch. Babies hungry, into their high chairs. Babies and dad having some porridge. Mum takes over and dad’s off to work. Phew!
Today I worked on this, a pen portrait of my wee twins, Zoe and James. I’m almost finished and pretty pleased. It is always hard to put the pen down and admit you have finished though, often resulting in going too far and over working a drawing.
I thought I would share this quick photo of the sketch and the photograph, but will scan the finished portrait tomorrow.
Night night for now sketch fans!
After an early awakening at 4am the babies slept till 7.30 this morning. After another feed and a costume change this sketch finds them lying on their mat playing together. ~Now for my breakfast! And then out into the sunshine I think, what is everyone up to today in this glorious city?
An absolutely gorgeous day here in Edinburgh today, not a cloud in the sky and my child’s thermometer measured 34.2 degrees in my garden. Honest. We four had a great day in our wee garden, my wife cut the grass and clipped the shrubs while I got to play with the twins.
I also made this watercolour sketch of them enjoying the sunshine. James is happy in his ‘bumbo’ seat as Zoe hits the ‘playgym’ behind. Soon after we took a walk down to Granton Harbour for a look at the boats, a great place to sketch on the docks. I bet there’s a lovely sunset down there about now.
