Caroline Shotton - We Can Be Heroes
WE CAN BE HEROES
My youngest loves dressing up and pretending he’s a super hero, so jumped at the chance to pose for some photos for my next painting. His brother, nearly nine, and far too old to be photographed in a costume, kindly agreed too. After numerous attempts to get them to pose sensibly, I got some photos I could work from. (Elliot, the youngest, is winding his brother up in the photo shown here, as Sam is wearing his ‘aged 5’ size costume which was very tight… I had to promise I would only photograph him from the waist up!) It was a fantastic piece to work on, and like with so many children when they put costumes on, I could see that Elliot was truly convinced he was a super hero.
