These are super!
Question, Do you paint them on the spot, or later on in the day?

Hey guys, thanks for the love:) Lots of people have been asking about when I paint these drawings. I have a portable watercolor set that I use to color them right on the spot after drawing them. I use a water resistant gelly roll pen so which doesnt bleed when I put water to it.

Until now it did not have to me bold to put a commentary in your blog, Chris, not to speak to pains English, but already I have discovered a translator, that I hope that does not destroy to my words;-P
I have happened much this way, and it enchants me what beams, the naturalness of your work,the movement that you transmit the personages.
Noneven never, you make me enjoy much your art. We see ourselves, Chris, a greeting from Spain.
