Farm Kids & Kites by Randy Sprout

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

18X24 Acrylic on Canvas: Just South of Wallingford Iowa I came upon these kids flying their kites as the sun set. I got permission from their Mom to work up some pictures and drawings, then combined 5 photos into one drawing and sent that to her. I am still working on this one, but I think it’s now headed the right direction. Too bad they didn’t have a dog, maybe I’ll have to give them one.

I am semi retired and love to travel with my 9X12 #140 Strathmore pad, my Sharpie Ultra Fine ink pen and five or six sticks of pastels or acrylics to color in my “finds” Sometimes I get real lucky and my wife Dawn will take some pictures I can use later. I seem to always be able to give some kind of sketch to my subjects or those bystanders who desperately want to give me some advice.
