A Little Walk in an alcohol ink original painting based on a photograph of a father and son that I took one rainy day. I wanted to capture the essence of the rain and create a whimsical atmosphere with the father and son on their dog walk. The father is leaning down towards his son, even though it causes him to stoop, and it means his son can reach his hand and be safely led down the pavement. The child is not at all bothered by the rain – he is waving his arms around in joy. Love is all the little moments. It is what fills the quiet. These small moments are what matter most.
To emphasize the cold wet rain, I opted for a predominantly blue and green theme. The toddler is wearing a classic yellow mac, which instantly takes me back to childhood. Gold metallic is woven into the ribbons of rain to warm up the painting. This father and son painting is on ceramic tile and finished with varnish.
All alcohol ink original paintings that I create are complete one-offs and are never reproduced in print or greeting cards. They are entirely unique pieces. Most of my work includes metallics and to maintain the integrity and uniqueness of each piece, they are never reproduced. Once they are gone, that is it – they belong to the new owner of the piece.
