Week 45: Friday 7th 2014
I was asked by my nephew when I was going to paint him a new painting. Last year I painted this one to celebrate his brother's birth + he keeps asking me for a painting of him + his toothless.
But I was feeling a different type of painting for Fred.
He is a massive fan of the Octonauts. If you are unfamiliar with these guy, they are animal explorers of the ocean + are charged to protect, explore + rescue. (Is is sad I didn't have to look this up?)
Anyway, if you have children under the age of five, these are hugely popular characters for both boys + girls.
(It's not just for kids - Mac is a huge fan too by the way!!)
Fred loves the octonauts + his favourite toy is the red shark gup.
I had been thinking of painting Fred as an octonaut, but it wasn't until I started sketching that I finally figured out where I was going to go.
All I have this week is a work in progress shot for you as I am gathering everything + preparing for the Christmas Markets I am attending next weekend.
Which by the way if you are in the Bathurst area I hope you will pop in + say hi.
