I had only an hour at their house and managed to get everything down on canvas that you can see on the second image in that time. It was pretty difficult as the children were doing a great job of acting naturally- ie moving around, but I'm pleased with how it went and that the pet cat also squeezed on!
When this stage was dry I worked on adding the colour in the studio. Please don't think I've made a mistake with those jeans- they were actually a very bright turquoise/cyan colour- not denim!
Nina is a very keen artist and so I carefully copied one of her actual lovely drawings on the paper she was working on.
I'm very pleased to hear the whole family is happy with it.
There's a photo of me trying to capture the rapidly changing sky at the beach last night! Always movement and challenges!
