The theme this week is 'On the beach'. I decided to have another go at using the 'toilet paper' technique that I tried last week for my 'Daily Art stop challenge Wednesday' piece, as I really enjoyed doing that. The toilet paper technique was just me pasting some toilet paper to a sheet of paper then I waited for it to dry and flattened it out then painted it with arcylic paint and acrylic ink. Once that was dry I cut the figures out that I had sketched and painted with acrylic paints and also used black pen. I then stuck them on top. I really like the texture of the back ground when I do this as well as the way the figures pop out a bit more.
I based this idea on fond memories of my Grandparents and I, especially my Bampi (Welsh for Grandpa). They used to take my brother and I for the school holidays and after school as our parents had to work so their home was a second home for us. They also took us down to the beach and Blackpill (in Swansea) in the summer time when they had us for the day. They would spoil us rotten and we loved it!!!! I really miss them both but I'm so glad I have these fond memories, this picture is of my Bampi and me paddling in the sea. I think he would like this picture, especially as I've actually drawn him with a bit more hair than he actually had I got a bit carried away.
