Ink & Coloured Pencil
A spot of baby sitting brought new inspiration.
I managed to capture a simple line sketch of Ellie before she woke, the sketch came with ease and was a welcome feeling after the previous day's block. I added a little coloured pencil after she left not wanting to waste a moment of her smiles and cuddles while she visited . I have sketched Ellie once before, although she visits regularly, it is always so difficult to put her down and pick up my sketchbook...adorable as she is!
I later drew inspiration from a book I have based on the Passion Play at Oberammergau, a gift from a friend who was lucky enough to attend in 2000. The next play takes place in 2010, it is an amazing display of tradition, creativity, dedication and unity, you can read about it here.
