The Boot-Sisters Sunday Sketch

Medium: HB pencil

Finally figured out our scanner - my older sister is -oh so glad!- to not have to take pictures for me all the time. I'm pretty happy how this turned out (scanner and in the general sketch), I like to think that childhood is made up by anything and everything you could possible put together and compiling it all into one little girl (or boy) to create their own unique self. My little sister, is very much one of them. She has the privileged right of picking out her desired PJ's every night and they almost always consist of footie jams, shorts over them and some random hat... I love it (all of these sketched little girls are inspired by outfits that Abbie has put on).

Happy Sketching everyone!

these are so darn cute. how fun that your little sister inspires you! You will have amazing things/portraits to show her when she is older, perhaps better, at least different than photographs.

Yay! This is so spot on the way kids would dress themselves. We are about to be invaded by my sister's three girls - twins (nearly 2 years old) and her 5 year old. They are all such darlings :)

Awwww. Love hearing about your little sister. Hee. And your sketches are adorable. I love them and those wellies are absolutely cute. The center one is my favourite but maybe because I'm a "fan" of patches. :D

Happy SS! :)

Totally adorable! Improving my sketching is my main goal this year so I'm a long way from being able to draw anything like this. So great!
