I always admire those watercolourist that can achieve a loose work with beautiful mingling of colours.
This was sketched out last night while watching the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games with Chocky asleep on my lap.
This morning i set to transferring this onto watercolour paper. My aim, to render it quickly and loosely exploring colour and allowing it to form the shapes and contours of his back.
He has the biggest set of ears, we are always having a joke saying, he still needs to grow into them.
Funnily enough it's his ears I am happiest with in this painting.
