Music Festival day 1

I've been looking forward to doing this painting of my favourite music festival bag, known to my friends as "The Mermaid". It's practical because it is plastic, so waterproof;  a good size for containing essentials to have with me at all times - sunglasses, sunscreen, sketchbook and paints, water, money, etc -  plus it is largely transparent, so easier to find stuff in!  A delightful holiday feature of it is that the flower on the cover flap contains real sand, which shifts around reminiscent of being on a beach. Oh yes, and I am a huge fan of "The Little Mermaid" anyway : )
