I'm new to the whole experience of drawing and painting outside but it's something I'd love to pursue rather then work entirely from photograph. My main distraction from doing this are my young family who along with my fidgety husband, have no interest in waiting for me to finish being creative, so out comes the camera and I'm back to square one. I see their point. If we're out on a family outing it's not entirely fun for one member to whip out their sketchbook every ten minutes to become completely absorbed in something else. It doesn't help my husband isn't creative that way and has no interest in joining me and my children are far too young to join in as well (2 year old and a 5 month old).
So what are your tips on keeping them occupied whilst I do a few drawings etc? I'm thinking about sending them off for 20min and meeting up later. Does anyone else have this dilemma? Should I distract them with food?
