Adventures with drawing and painting

Father to son

Abstract watercolor painting of adult and child figures in a stream.

“The father washes onto the son. He lives inside you as an aspiration, a disappointment, or a fear. Afraid you will never be like him or afraid you will be; he is there in the bones of your emotions. In the voices in your head. In your expectations of yourself. In the shadows of your weakness or strength. No matter how good the relationship, there is tension between father and son.” (Boyd Varty, The Lion Tracker’s Guide to Live)

I used a pencil, a Uniball Vision pen, Derwent Inktense Watercolors, Derwent Graphitint Watercolors, and Derwent Waterbrushes for this painting.
