adventurous grandmother by pettryb adventurous grandmother by pettryb
It was a very lazy, uneventful and the most perfect summer adventure.

Only the rabbit felt a little depressed: there was not a single fish in the pond.

I love the title. I do believe the grandmother is the most interesting character in this scene. :)

I love it!
All the characters are just so awesome and full of personality; their expressions and poses speak volumes! I love the grandmother's hat, it gives her such an elegant and unperturbed air; and the boy's bold stance.

You are such a pro at watercolor! It's amazing! Do you draw a plan first or just go? (Also if this turns out not to be watercolor I will feel SO dumb)

Don't worry, it's watercolor. :) I do draw characters, but the background usually has just some guidelines, especially if it's not that complex.

I like your gallery and your unique style very very much! To look at your paintings is a real delight ! And this is one of my favourites ( I'm a grandmother, actually, my dog Flipper is almost identical, my grandson is tall and slim and I adore adventures and big hats. However knitting is not my favourite hobby...... now that I'm retired l would like to learn drawing.
