I thought it would be interesting to make a story out of it, to do a diptych of a mother and son having an afternoon drink. The mother having tea or coffee, the son having milk and playing with his truck.

I thought I'd show a few stages of the lay-in process as I only had a few days to paint this to have it ready in time for Christmas.
I also added some milk to the boys cup.
I had joked about drinking the milk when I was finished to celebrate, but did not look to appetizing after sitting in the studio for a few days- it was more cheese than milk at this point. Instead I went for a beer on the way home.
