☆ The Sea Explorer [Friday Art]

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.

And if you bring this voucher with you, you can receive 10% off everything in store.

You can download it by clicking on the voucher above or here.

The voucher is valid at all the markets I am attending for the rest of the year:

Until the end of the year you can find me: 
Have a great weekend.
