I wear my favourite hat, bag and carry Croccy

Brothers in garden playing with black Labrador puppy. Knights and castles. Family commission.

The photograph is a small section depicting the youngest son wearing his favourite train drivers hat and carrying Croc, his best pal. It is from the gorgeous and fun illustrative portrait commission of Mrs Hickinson’s two young sons playing in the garden. They wield swords and love to play knights and castles like any young adventurous boys with a great imagination. Their playful black Labrador is close by pulling socks off their feet. The eldest son wears his superhero outfit and stands upon the old wooden stool made by the mouse man. A fantastic painting with the idea that Mrs Hickinson wants another one in a year or so as the children and their Labrador grow. A lovely commission to do for a lovely family, I really enjoyed painting this one as I learned more about these two comrades and their active and playful personalities.
