To be a child 1 by Elizabeth Kendall

Water soluble pencils, waterpaint, pen and lots of imagination! On A3 140GSM mixed media paper.
I’ve drawn this picture just because I wanted to! Childish, I know, but why not? There is so much fun in creating and colouring. I think deep down there’s still a child laughing and jumping and playing. I just had to let her out a bit!! ;-) Hope you also enjoy as I did. Shall we call it naive art? and maybe this will be nr.1 of a series….
