The in-laws

The In-laws
The in-laws were going to be in the family portrait, but they didn't fit on the gap left on the sofa so I made a small painting just of them. I used acrylics on a very smooth canvas billed as 'good for any water based medium'. It was a hard taskmaster, slurping up the colour as soon as it was applied and drying before there was a chance to make any changes. Not unlike watercolour really.

So there they sit, these visitors to the antipodes, just about to go for their afternoon walk.
