Big thanks to Mikey Oxley for letting me use a family image to practice painting figures…i tried once before to do a figure ..but it was terrible so thought i would give it another go ..I left the trees where they were as didn;t want to use too much artistic license ..being a family photo..I was thinking off entering it into figures challenge..took me ages to get figure proportions right !!!!!

1/4 sheet imperial..w/n and american journey paints..watercolour.
