A Couch, a Book, a Son, and a Sketch

Over the years I’ve sketched my son lounging with a book many times. I admire the way he fills the couch with his relaxed limbs and comfortable presence. I wanted to capture that feeling with this painting.

I usually paint on half of a large sheet of paper, but this time I used all 20 x 30 inches (50 x 75 centimeters) of a Stonehenge Black Watercolor sheet. It is great to look across the room and see my son sprawled across it.
