The Blue Hat

The Blue Hat - watercolour - 16.5cm x 24.5cm
Children really are a joy to paint - they grow so fast I can hardly keep up.
Because children have so few wrinkles or other outstanding features it helps
if you pose them in strong sunlight. The cast shadows define the form and
the presence of a hat gives additional contrast to their smooth faces.
