Dog N Boy by Amanda Reynolds

I created a small collection called Dog N Boy during the first Lockdown which explores mental health and how it feels sometimes especially for children. I have 3 children 2 at primary school age and I was often concerned about their transition back to school. It was strange how it actually became normal that they schooled at home and school was a more novel idea after a while. The isolation and fear to mix with others made them worried about going back. The dog represents a parental figure and the black balloon is a feeling of anxiety for a child. I created them in a watercolour wash with Indian ink.
