Creative Tuesdays: Children

On Top of the World

This idea came to mind when coming up with the CT theme last fortnight but at that point, this brother and sister were way up high in a tree overlooking their home and surrounding area, imagining theirs was the highest around. Even though it was their imagination, the parent in me wanted them to scurry down down right away! Hahaha. So, instead, I thought, how about have them looking at a building block landscape instead? :) Alex then had the idea of them being on a bunk bed... and many hours later, voila!

Unfortunately, as you can see, it's not quite finished. I had hoped to paint in the colour but some things came up this weekend that made it hard to find the time to do so. Well, I hope to do that later then. If so, I'll be sure to post that version too. 

How did your "children" renditions come along? I can't wait to see what each of you did. I was quite inspired creating this scene, thinking about how my daughter and hubs are expecting twins. And, actually, you know what? These are probably the best kids I've ever drawn! :) Wheeee...

  1. Are not children the most exciting theme. I am still such a kid at heart. I love the bedroom scene...the place where so many childhood games and dreams are made and played out. I have loved to paint children for years, and wanted to do something more detailed, but as you, we had some sad news with another of Don's nephews passing suddenly and we were out of town. Bud get one posted.
    Will look forward to the color one later on.

  4. Michael, you have really captured the feeling of childhood wonderment with lovely expressions on their faces, as if they were up that tree viewing the world below. Especially like the little bear joining in too. Really lovely interpretation of the theme.

  7. this looks good without color, you've captured their playfulness, with the flipflops and the toys in their hands, the opened book, the teddy bear - great details.

    have a sweet day.
