Our grandson's birthday was last month and as it's the dead of winter, I thought it would be fun to give him something summery to look forward to . . .
Love those intense Peerless watercolors! But I need a lot of practice with skin tones: lacking a good tan shade, I used a greatly watered down brownish-red for the boy's image and he came out looking a little sunburned. Oh well – shades of summer!
