Child's Play

This is my 3 year old grandson's figure drawing; - a typical child's figure where he draws what he  "knows".

Here in a second drawing are a few more advanced children's figures, with shaped appendages and ideas about hair, eyes, clothing and even eye glasses.  Some  adults are often stuck with such simple concepts when they first try to draw people. They "know" about bodies,  - that there are appendages and body details   but haven't either studied anatomy or learned how to look and truly "see". There are some people who without any training or apparent effort at all, draw beautifully.  I was not one of those!
