It is amazing what you can be inspired by. Just a quick image on Instagram of a landscape with some people drawn in it gave me the idea for this sketchbook project. I cut out several landscapes out of magazines and let the girls choose which landscape they wanted. Then I explained what I would like them to do. Imagine where the landscape is and what happens there and draw the character that belongs in that imagination. Tell a story. The last remark Ellen took literally and she insisted I wrote down the words of the story she imagined for her landscape, involving butterflies and fairies.
