drawing – wee watercolour for Ava Lane
Drawing children is a lot of fun, but not something I get to do often, so I was so delighted when Tara Carr commissioned a small watercolour figure for her line Ava Lane. Tara designs lovely floral dresses and separates for adorable babies and toddlers.
As a model I used photos of my little niece Evelyn, who is a bright little sprite with an unbelievable head of curls. Here’s a picture of me and her from last Canadian Thanksgiving, playing with milkweed pods back home. I have to admit doing this painting made me feel a bit homesick, and full of affection.
Thanks Tara, and of course thanks Evelyn!
