Vivienne sketches

My granddaughter is a pure delight to watch and to draw. Sadly I don't do that enough. The other evening we visited, this time with sketchbook. First sketch she was asleep and I was so focused on her head (fascinated by what must be going on in there I guess) that I failed to take into account her tiny hands which I ended up drawing in after. So much for good composition! The second was a quick sketch when she woke and before we left. She is absolutely attentive to everything around her, which I know is not unusual but fascinating to watch never the less. Family commented that I made her look like an old man but to me I think that I caught that gaze of wonder. Must do this much more often.
