Kids in motion at scouts
At Gabbi’s scouts this week, the theme was Mataraki, the Maori New Year celebration. While the kids were busy on the carpet, making stars (stars are part of the mythology around Matariki) I decided to give sketching the kids in motion another go. They’re kids so they don’t sit still for very long, and I still get nervous as soon as I put pen to paper. I pray the person being sketched doesn’t move, but they always do!
