"Distracted Dad" Article

This illustration was for the column, "Distracted Dad", which is an article to be found in Latest Homes Magazine.
The deadline was fairly tight, but I enjoyed the painting, after a rocky start.
The article in question concerns the authors perfect day out with his family, which includes a canal boat journey, a picnic, and an encounter trying to photograph a less than complient peacock.
Originally the figure taking the photo was less prominant, so in the final painting I enlarged him slightly, which improved the composition a lot I think.
