Apple #19

One of the things Elsie shared with us when she came into my son’s class on Tuesday was her sketch book – age after page of whimsical little drawings she has captured during holidays and Didsbury walkabouts. I love that book! I’ve been lucky enough to peruse it a few times. She also showed us the pen she uses and encouraged the children to use pen over pencil when drawing their sketches.

“It’s easy to change a line if you don’t like it,” she said.

Well, I don’t know if I agree with that, but she was my inspiration for this week’s apple. I even went out and bought an exact replica of Elsie’s pen. If only that would translate into being able to draw like Elsie!

Until then,

go paint a wall or something.
