Illustration Friday - Theatre

Well I can't believe I actually got something finished today. It has been a crazy day with lots of crazy kids running around and practically jumping all over me while I'm trying to draw. Quite stressful cirmcumstances to draw under but I just really wanted to keep going and I got there in the end I think. I'm not entirely sure that it's exactly right but I think I'm happy with it. When I saw the theme for this week the first thing that sprang to mind was how my kids and their friends seem to be able to make up so many different games and basically seem to be acting out certain things. Sometimes there are monsters, sometimes there are witches or wizards and sometimes there is a princess that just needs to be rescued. Whatever the situation they come up with there are some great pieces of acting and it's very entertaining to watch!!! I painted the background in watercolour, and the characters in acrylic paint then cut them out and stuck them on to the background. I've done that a little bit lately and really like how the characters seem to pop out!
