Not-So-Still Life

12/20/12 Diamine Twilight ink, Stillman & Birn Gamma

Just yesterday I was saying that people in coffee shops usually move so little that I can sometimes sketch them almost like a still life. But if the person in question is a child, all bets are off.
This tyke sitting in his mom’s lap was squirming a mile a minute, but since I’m not around small kids much, it was a rare opportunity too good to pass up. Young children’s proportions are so different from those of adults that it wasn’t just his constant motion that made the sketches challenging. By the time he got transferred to dad’s lap, he was ready to leave, so I didn’t get to finish him or his dad.
