A Dreamer Walking

Joy of a Boy

Posted in Uncategorized by Jacob on May 14, 2010

After doing so many serious pictures, I decided to go with a fun one. Inspired a bit by Norman Rockwell’s style of painting, I did this watercolor. The shirt and the background are all cold colors, making the face and hair (worm colors) pop out really well. The eyes really seem to pop out as well because they are surrounded by worm colors. This painting is supposed to make you think of a childhood memory. It is a good representation of the joy of being a boy.

    You have nailed it. Great painting. It reminds me of my mother, who was a teacher, and always loved her “ornery little boys”. Also seems to be a bit of Huck Finn…
