All this year my little boy and I have been hard at work putting together a tree house for him at the bottom of the garden. I love the fact that he pays so much interest in whatever part I’m working on at the time and will often sit on the roof of the tree house and ask me questions. I decided to draw him one day whilst he was sat on high surveying the garden.
I remember at the time having to quickly get his basic form down on paper before he ordered me back to work. A few weeks after I managed to find a bit of time to finish the sketch and add a little bit of texture. I really like it for the fact that it instantly takes me back to fun times in the garden.
Oh, in case you’re interested in what The Castle currently looks like here it is. It’s all made from salvaged wood so hasn’t cost me anything apart from the odd moment of frustration when nothing seems to fit right.
