'Sleepy Monkey and Wooden Duck'

‘Sleepy Monkey and Wooden Duck’

Above is another in my series of “On a Ledge” paintings. As random things go that live on a window ledge I must say I do like Sleepy Monkey, this painting is the second he got to pose for!  The light, shade and reflections in this picture worked surprisingly well in the watercolours. As the main focus was centred around painting art for children rooms’ in this series, I have been surprised too by the number of adults who have shown much interest in them.

Here is how the idea arose for “On a Ledge Series” for those who have not seen others in the range

Bored and uninspired one day, I stood in my kitchen wondering what I could draw? Whilst wondering I absent mindedly started tidying and rearranging things on the ledge. I’m not one for nice pot ornaments, rather have slightly wacky or weird decorative things around! So, as I now had a disarrayed pile of things I had moved and a clean window ledge – The idea struck me. I could use it as a little staging area for a series of still life pictures!!!
