So sorry Helen - we have family pics like this, so I was 'drawn' to it - pardon the pun ....... but I'm so out of practice, I've aged you I'm afraid!!!
Sketch book, 2B pencil, drawing approx 8" x 5" - in a frustrating hour!
Heading for the Stinkers now :D
Definitely posted "in the spirit of...."

You're being to hard on yourself, you haven't aged me that much... I recognize me and I like the way you handled the bench and background

It's CUTE! YOu are so hard on yourself. The dress and legs are so well done. No stinker here.

I think the portrait is very cute.
05-05-2007, 01:01 PM
She's recognizable for sure, and I love her "standing still for the camera" pose!
05-05-2007, 01:18 PM
Maureen...I think you are too hard on yourself with this...it's a wonderful sketch!!
05-05-2007, 04:10 PM
Me too! It's especially difficult when the child has to 'look at the camera and smile'..whilst protecting her eyes from the glare of the sun!:wink2: Your drawing is good!:clap: :clap: :clap:
05-05-2007, 05:26 PM
Well, you're such a good, generous bunch of friends!
Thank you very much - but to me, well, it's already smelling in Li's thread :D :D :lol: :lol:

How cute is this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
05-05-2007, 11:19 PM
Aww she's still cute anyways :) Maybe if her eyes were lower and closer together and the nose a wee bit narrower she'd look younger? It's something I was struggling with in this week's Drawing/Sketching weekly project.
Thats a great sketch of Helen, Nice Job!!:clap:

You ARE being too hard on yourself. It's got a nice simple, kinda "old fashioned" feel to it.
05-06-2007, 10:12 AM
It's sweet. I like how you've catured the "little girl dress" with so few lines! I remember wearing those myself -- and feeling pretty!
05-06-2007, 10:38 AM
Thanks everyone! You're very kind y 'know :D :lol:
EP - I think maybe you hit the nail on the head - thank you!
I'm hopeless at drawing children - don't work at it enough - so this was my challenge :D ....... If I have time, might even do a spot of erasing :D
05-06-2007, 11:57 AM
Apologies? Are you mad??? :wink2: A very charming drawing :clap: cheers for sharing it.
05-06-2007, 01:59 PM
what a cute sketch. not a sticker at all! (don't you dare... :p )
05-06-2007, 02:56 PM
Poor Helen, she gave us a cute picture and what did we do with it? I do like yours much better than mine and recognize that dress. I had one just like it.
05-06-2007, 03:35 PM
Me too Connie - and even a pic of my sister and I on the garden seat in similar pose! :lol:
Thanks all - Marni, Mike and Connie - it's already in the Stinkers Mike :lol: :lol: - I can show there with the best of them ;)

Thank you Marianne :D

I thought I was the only person afflicted with the insta-age touch. But strangely, the picture's very pretty in a quaint sort of way. And of course all the detail has been rendered wonderfully well.

It shows great personality.
