* * *This is the last sketch for the Sketch Swap and this time my 8 year old came with me, her own sketchbook and watercolour pad in hand. She wanted to sketch the same thing as I did, so we searched together for a plant to draw. After we settled for the Crane's-bill (also known as Dove's foot) Geranium, it was she who found the right one to draw - all nice and straight, under the shadow of a wild cherry tree, for it was hot under the sun. It was fun sketching in her company and she was really patient, waiting for me to finish. She only asked "Why do you take so long?" after she finished hers, made another two drawings and picked up some carrots, but more out of curiosity than boredom. And then I finally finished and we went home for it was time for a snack.

gerânio (bico-de-pomba-menor), foi ela quem encontrou a planta perfeita, bonita e direitinha e à sombra de uma ginjeira, pois ao sol estava muito calor. Foi engraçado desenhar com ela e a verdade é que foi muito paciente, enquanto esperava que eu acabasse. Só perguntou uma vez "Porque é que tu demoras tanto?", depois de ter acabado o dela, feito mais dois desenhos e apanhado algumas cenouras, e pareceu-me mais curiosa do que aborrecida. Mas finalmente, eu lá acabei, e pudémos ir para casa lanchar, que já eram horas.
