I visited the circus a few weeks ago, intent on sketching some clowns in action. But in addition to that, sitting near me, was this mother and child. The baby’s face mesmerized me, and I tried to capture her fretfulness. With an unsettled sky and storm approaching, the background served as a perfect foil to this moment.

    I really like this, Terry. You’ve successfully captured two emotions and you can only see one of the faces – the fear of the little one and the comfort of the mommy. Well done!
