Practicing children

These are two sketches I did of children, never intended for anything...But one never knows..

To go further with it I would have to make more grass. I imagined the scene as Little Miss Muffet coming out of her book, along with the spider. The girl holding the cat could be a mother, but I imagined her as a teen sister.


Here a girl on time out imagines running away like a hobo. I think most children do imagine that once in awhile, regardless of how happy their life is. In the original sketch I drew a circus train going by out her window, along with unfinished homework and toys scattered on the floor. The picture was too busy so I cropped out the scene of her looking in the mirror, which was the most captivating part.
