From the sketches, you'd think Baby Elaine only sleeps but she's getting more energetic every day. She can't roll yet but she's started bum-shuffling and boxes the toys hanging from her activity gym like a loony.
After the Elephant man drawing I decided I was trying too hard and am going to concentrate on drawing for short periods - 3 mins, 6 mins, 20 mins. Maybe I'll eventually speed up enough so that I have the courage to draw outside in public places.
24th February - two 6 minute sketches. Today was our first session at baby massage class and it seemed to really knock Elaine out.
27th February - 17 weeks old - she's spent most of the day playing like a fruit loop with the activity gym. I tried to capture her in motion...she's just a baby but it's still too fast for me!
1st March 2012 - Elaine has so many clothes but I always seem to draw her when she's wearing this stripey babygro. It's my current favourite anyway.
