Translation: WATCH OUT! It's an ice rink!
When I was in Paris before Christmas, Jemma and I went to have a breakfast picnic in a beautiful little park near to where she used to teach. It was a very bright, but cold and icy morning and we enjoyed eating out croissants on a bench by the duck pond. All of a sudden a troupe of nursery school children marched down the path and the above happened. I felt a bit sorry for their teacher - I think he had his hands full with his chic, clumsy little pupils!
I sketched the scene in my sketchbook when we were having a warm up hot chocolate in a cafe nearby. I couldn't resist colouring it in.
My favourite is the child with the extraordinary bun.ReplyDelete
You could make this the beginning of a campaign to restore 'nature walks' into primary schools.
absolutely love this!ReplyDelete
Ah thank you Teresa!ReplyDelete
I keep sneaking a peek at your blog - such lovely things to look at!
( P.s Alison and Tamlyn told me about your books - so pleased and excited for you!)
Hi Ester - a great idea. That little girl was very cute and so non-plussed by nature. Not sure she would enjoy regular 'nature walks'!ReplyDelete
Merci - this picture made my day!!!ReplyDelete
lovely drawing, lovely colours! I would like to see a picture book with these kids - and their teacher, of course!ReplyDelete
