'Good Evening M'lady'

Good Evening M'lady
Watercolour / Gouache
24 x 31cm

I had lots of fun bringing my rag and bone badger and lamplighter weasel characters together for this painting. There is no doubt that I have benefited re-using two characters in a new painting, the turn around was slightly quicker than normal because most of the colour decisions had already been made in previous paintings and the overall atmosphere is lifted straight from 'Rag & Bone'. You could say half of the image had already been painted before I even picked up my brushes.

I wonder if the lamplighter managed to catch the eye of the flower seller in the end?
