Painting and photo sketches #113

I'm beginning a series working in different ways with photographs.  Firstly in my sketchbook working directly into the photo image with acrylic paint to redefine the composition, colour and tones.
 There's a story attached to the original photograph, which concerns a visit my son made to the shop with our grandson, who got bored and decided to join the window display. His pose earned him a round of applause from a grinning street audience. Fortunately his father allowed an encore especially for the camera... which I'm now having more fun with in my sketchbook.
