crawling gestures

action sketches; 8.5" x 5.5"

My 8.5 month old grandson is starting to maneuver from point A to point B now. His movements remind me of those of a butterfly - they look seemingly ineffective but manage to get the job done.  He's close to the classic crawl but is still a bit clumsy with it.  It's been a good drawing exercise trying to capture some of those movements.  I should simply concentrate on the body as a whole but I can't resist going in and getting some of his facial features - when he pauses - which is rare.
