Different views

My foster daughter and I hiked up to the vista at Kamiak Butte this morning where we sat on a bench with our sketch books and pencils and got to work capturing the view on paper.

Same bench. Same type of paper. Same type of pencil. But very different interpretations.

[Mine is the top drawing; the kid’s is the bottom.]

  1. oh yes! i love comparing how people see the world differently. it’s fascinating finding out about famous artist’s eye problems, cognitive function and so on – a real reminder that not everyone sees the same subject in the same way
    PS: yes, you do have competition

  2. I glanced over at her book when she was sketching and was a bit green with envy. I’ve always admired people who can sketch abstractly. I love the look of it but I am not able to let myself free. She really is an amazing little artist!!
