(Below: the final water colour painting, my pencil sketch and my son’s original drawing.)
Here we go again! The subject for the second instalment of the “stealing my son’s ideas” project is (obviously) penguins!
I liked the simplicity of his original sketch but felt it necessary to add a couple of other penguins to make my version more dynamic. The bright colours came about after I did some painting tests and discovered that black and white penguins just looked too flat.
I’m not 100% happy with this one. Maybe doing it as a portrait like the original drawing would have ultimately been more satisfying. Live and learn!
