Drummies and Roundabouts


 I'm slaving away with clay at the moment for my Dinner Party project, and enjoying it immensely - takes me right back to my plasticine days and making tiny bowls of fruit to feed my tiny make-believe family. But I'm not ready to show and tell yet, so here are some sketches I did with our Joburg group at Marks Park just before we went away.

A junior baseball tournament was about to get under way, and there were drum majorettes directed by a rather camp coach, children (I'm sketching a lot of children lately!) playing on a roundabout and the players lining up for their march past. Some dads kept going over to the roundabout and telling the boys to get off in case they hurt themselves - and then wouldn't be fit to play baseball - no such concern for the girls and tiny tots who were whizzing around!

What fabulous sketches Cathy. It amazes me how you can capture so much detail and movement at the same time.

Plus through your sketches Jo'burg always looks sunny and fun ;)
