Day 22. Project Laureate - Family Sketchbook

The Romance of Drawing

I didn't quite realize what the Hubster was drawing today. It was me. But NOT in a onesie!

He sketched my image from our wedding photograph. I found myself quite emotional. The care and time he took over tracing the lines of my face, my eyes, my lips. I was looking at him in the original photo. There's something rather intimate about drawing a person, isn't there?

Well, I'm a blubbering heap. And rather touched.

Drawing together is special. It shares memories and makes memories. I'd be lying if I said it wasn't tricky fitting in the time everyday, but it's worth it, definitely worth it.

Tempted? Sharpen those pencils and get sketching...

Day 22 #ProjectSketchbook

Freya's rather under the weather again and full of coughs and colds, but continuing this romantic theme - she's drawn a Moshi heart. Thanks Freya x

Oliver's detailed sketch of a salt water croc. Snappy!

William's used ink to outline his reptile. Great work!

Mine is also a simple line drawing today. No shading, no shadow, just lines.

Hubster's drawing. Thank you. It's lovely.


  1. Wow! The eyes of love! Well done that Hubster!

    1. Yes, very kind eyes I think. More than generous on his subject :) It's been such a lovely experience this project.
