Shadow Sleep

  • Painting
  • Gouache on paper
  • A3 portrait

I was at my grandparents and my grandma said, "Do you want to play a game?" and I said, "Yes". The idea was I would do a drawing of people and then roll dice and whatever the number was I had to draw that number of eyes on the faces. The drawing started out as people, then it evolved into people in a bed. My grandpa liked the drawing and I showed it to my dad and mum, and then my other grandpa asked if I wanted to enter the Young Artists' Summer Show, so I made a painting based on the drawing.
