I must say she's not a big fan of drawing though. Drawings are ad-hoc spur-of-a-moment activities for her. She wouldn't draw if I asked her to draw something just to show me. It doesn't work that way. I don't know if she does not have much interest in drawing in general, or if it's the perfectionist streak in her - she doesn't like to do things unless she's confident of doing them well.
This is one of her first 'legible' drawing - there's a yellow sun, with green grass all over.

I showed her how to draw a stick man here (left). She was surprisingly co-operative and managed to draw one herself (right) too!

She impressed me when she started drawing cats. She could not draw the ears initially and I helped her with those.

There was a period that she was really into Carebears so we drew a Carebear! This was drawn by her with some verbal instructions from me (e.g. draw a round snout, some dot dot freckles etc) and we were looking at a stuffed Carebear while drawing. It was really cute. She only drew this once ever.

She managed to copy a simple picture of a ladybug.

She drew 3 hearts - one for daddy, one for mommy and one for herself. How sweet! This was after she figured out how to write the number '3'. She would write a horizontal '3' first, then join the two ends to make a heart. Really ingenious!

She came home from school one day and drew this cat, complete with the ears. It was just a few days before her 3rd birthday. She said her teacher taught her. Prior to this, she refused to try drawing the ears herself when I tried to teach her. Well well. The same day, she drew a girl with a ponytail and a cute rabbit! Seemed to me she's happy with her new found skill of drawing an inverted 'U'.
