Kids play, I practice

It's too bad we don't quite remember the years of our lives when we were 4 or 5. I certainly don't. At that age there's truly not much of a difference between playing and anything else. Playing is what you do and how you relate to the world. On Sunday, while Alex played again with his friends outside, I picked up my watercolor block to do this sketch. To follow up yersterday's post, I'd say that was good "practice" for me. Fun too, but more practice than play.

Es una pena que no recordemos cómo era nuestra vida cuando teníamos cuatro o cinco años. Yo por lo menos no me acuerdo. A esa edad sí que no existe diferencia entre jugar y el resto de actividades. Para los niños el juego es la forma de relacionarse con su entorno. Mientras Alex y sus amigos jugaban otra vez en la calle el domingo yo cogí mi bloque de papel de acuarela para hacer este apunte. Retomando el hilo de mi post anterior, diría que para mí fue una buena práctica. Entretenida por supuesto, pero más práctica que juego.

  1. I remeber being 2 years old and how the world looked around me....everything so big!!! Yes, play, play, play! This is a great practice sketch. Today in class i pretended I was 5 and drew the model with those eyes and with my left hand. I'll post in a few days....it's good to regress at times
