Acrylic on 7x5 gessoed canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Gail was the great hostess who supplied all the reference photos. Thanks, Gail !

 The joy of childhood seemed a great I went with the little splasher.

I wrangled myself clear out of my comfort zone, and decided to experiment with ink and acrylics. I drew and painted over a rough application of gesso. I used Uni Pin and thinned acrylic.
Nothing went according to plan...mainly because I had no plan...

C&C Welcome. Thanks for looking and commenting!
