Jasmine's yellow blanket.

This is Jasmine with her ‘lello’ comfort banket. We once had to drive 30 miles back to a hotel to retrieve the last grubby 2 square inches of it. The hotel must have thought we were mad . Its not a very good likeness. I tried in this picture to depict the skin tones in ‘real colours’ rather than  paint what one  expects to see. Jasmine used to be a very pale almost ivory colour when she slept. In my frenzy of washing and rubbing out I managed to tear a big chunk of the watercolour paper from around the eyelid. This doomed me to not getting the eyelid right but I managed to patch it up with some delicate surgery.
