'The Schoolgoers'

Sheila

Two recent studio works a bit out of my comfort zone as I am not the greatest for portraits.

(Top) A little watercolour of my Godson Bobby with his favourite little comfort toy.

"Telly Brothers". Not strictly plein air.

Although not really 'plein air' as such, it was painted outside of my own house. My little Godson and his younger brother enjoying an episode of 'Fireman Sam'.
