I've commented before here that my family are not the greatest fans of my artwork - they don't get the loose thing and prefer more photo realistic paintings - they do like my drawings but when it comes to watercolours where I tend to be looser they're not quite sure and will sometimes say things like 'is it finished?' or 'what is it?' and sort of cock their head as if it's going to look any better from a different angle!!!! But then from time to time they will like something and have even asked me to paint things for them. My eldest daughter is meerkat mad and asked me to paint one for her -' but make sure it looks like a meerkat' she said - 'don't do that loose thing with it'!!!! As if? So here is my unloose meerkat - and thank goodness - she loved it - hurray result!!!!!
