Just realized that even though this was painted a few days ago- I didn’t get a chance to upload it here. I love this pose – it is so unscripted and childlike. I love his little fists and the way that children make efforts to get really close to what they are interested in.
This painting is on claybord – and it has a super smooth surface, which was a challenge and a blessing at the same time. Working on it reminded me of some of the effects that you can get with watercolour – so I incorporated them into this little sketch.
How do you think it turned out?
