Summer's over!

It's back to the usual routine, the boys are back at school, and I'm back in front of the easel.
Over the summer I was asked to do a new commission. Five kids who are cousins. The photos are great, they are animated and taken in good light. Its an A3 painting, I decided today that gouache and watercolour pencil will work well. I made a small start today taking my time to get a feel for the characters and expressions of the children.
Its a busy week for me so I'm not sure how much more I will get done in the rest of the week. I've an added distraction, that this Friday I turn 40!
