Quick Sketches From Dream Images

Children Sketch Katherine Kean
graphite  9 1/2 x 13 inches

The particular image I have in mind is of wild horses running past children who are crouching at about eye level with the horses hooves, and just visible through the kicked up sand.

The sketch above is a detail of the children. I've sketched them in in the drawing below, can you see them?

 I'd like the painting to be large and tonal, shapes just coalescing out of the dust.

I love the first drawing and the horses turning in the second, but on my iPad I can't see the children in the second drawing. Probably defect in the way the iPad is enlarging the image. I feel like they are in the lower right somewhere.

Hi Jean,
Your intuition is correct. They are far to the right and near the bottom, and in that drawing they are tiny, perhaps half an inch high.
