Bedroom Reading

A fiddly painting with irrelevant little details - a form of self torture when I'm trying to paint them all in!

The base coat was a flat wash of burnt umber to establishing an overall harmony before applying layers of colour in watercolour and gouache.
It's a mish-mash of eras - the train, clockwork animals, radio etc date it from early to mid 20th century yet two of the posters on the wall depict a 90's and a 00's band!

As with the majority of my work the original is available for purchase. Price on enquiry or
Archival prints and greeting cards will be available at my website Creations in a Teapot in the next few days.  
  Below is an early version of the painting in its base colours...
