To draw from an imagination

Last week my youngest daughter was sick, so we spent a lot of time at home doing various activities, among others - drawing together. As I used to, I was drawing from observation, when my daughter, of course, was drawing "from the head". At some point she told me: "Mom, stop drawing by looking, draw from your imagination!" It wasn't easy at all!

Here are some sketches I did while waiting with my daughter for a doctor.

For some reason the coffee shop area was full of old ladies
Take care of yourself and keep on drawing!

  3. Very interesting. I've been thinking about drawing from imagination lately too. I even bought a book on how to do it! Oh, I do envy children!
