Little Boxes of dogs and cats

I made these pictures based on (basically copies of) Rob Hudgson's wonderful designs. My elder son had tonsillitis, so we had a lot of time to do arts and crafts after the antibiotics kicked in!

I had planned to paint these since before Easter and I was so glad to finally get round to it. I used 20 cm x 20 cm canvases and acrylic paints.

Little boxes of London painting

Our guest bedroom had bare walls, and I wanted to paint something that is related to London, as our house guests spend lots of time sight seeing there.

  I discovered Rob Hudgson's work on pinterest which I thought was really cool and relatively easy for me to paint. Later I discovered he did some pictures based on cities, London being one of them. So I got to work.
I enjoyed painting this, and my boys liked to watch these familiar things appear on the canvas with smiling faces! More to come...
