But Muuuuum... by AmandaDrage But Muuuuum... by AmandaDrage
He wants to go play, but his Mum says he has to eat his tea.

Experimenting with speedpainting on an Indian red ground. I've seen quite a few artists do this and the little areas of red peeking through really bring everything together. I haven't quite managed to capture that here but I'm not far off, just need a bit more practice!

I'm not sure what was going on with the colours either, but I think a gold or bronze-toned frame will help this one a lot. I thought brick-red originally, but I've changed my mind on that.

8x8" oil on canvasboard.

Oh my gosh, this is wonderful!! You have really captured innocence in this and I love your use of color (including the red that's shining through) and lighting, great job!!

Aww, so cute! Lovely work! I love the colours, especially the red touches that peek through.. really gives it an "earthy" African feel... if that makes sense! :3

Thank you :) Yes that does make sense, and I'm glad because that's the look I was hoping for!
