  • Super evocation of what I expect is 1950’s or very early 1960s. I had a pair of shorts just like those!

  • Nicely expressed and the pigments show his features of sadness and clothes from a boy in the 60's with the pink blotches revealed, and a nimble composure too. He looks timid and although he frowns you captured his expression well!

  • Thanks Tony and Angela, I’ve been told that many pairs of shorts like these were a actually cut down uniforms!

  • Love your painterly brushstrokes and the expression you have captured so well. Agree with all the comments below, especially that wonderful stance Frank.

  • Forgot to mention I have used interactive acrylics for landscapes but they are a bit tricky when trying to blend. How did you compare them with ordinary acrylics?

  • Thanks Stephen and Carole. Carole, yes Interactive acrylics are tricky to blend because once on the ground, they dry rapidly - you have to wet it, but then you lose the immediacy of the original brush strokes so that’s a bit of a no-no for me with this type of painting.

  • This is lovely. The simplicity, brushstrokes/expression and colours all just fantastic.
