Time To Play - A Figurative Portrait in Watercolour

This is my son when he was six years old playing on a beach in Italy.  We are lucky that I have family that live 20 minutes drive away from gorgeous sandy beaches along the Tuscan coast of Italy.   I have lots of memories of happy times spent playing in the very same spot as a child.  I wanted to create similar happy memories for my son too.

My son is now nineteen and now he too has fond memories just like I do of those wonderful sandy seaside times spent in Italy.
