Almost missed today…. Day 21. Computer problems. But here I am and will try to do another one tomorrow!
Mrs Joe lists all the problems that Pip has caused her: climbing, falling, injuries. (Sounds like normal kid stuff to me.) She serves Mr Pumblechook some brandy. It doesn’t go well. Why? Because it’s from the very same bottle that Pip had siphoned brandy out of for the convict! Mr Pumblechook downs his glass. Pip is very nervous that he will notice it is weak. But apparently it isn’t weak, but very strong and horrible-tasting. Pip had topped off the bottle with Tar-water! Mr P springs up from his seat, spins around several times and bolts out of the house! I don’t think Pip meant it to be tar-water, but regular water. Anyway, he’s probably about to get into some serious trouble!
I really like how this quick watercolor came out. I scanned it, then finished it off in Photoshop for the details. Crazy Mr P is half seen off to the left running around outside. What happens to Pip? Tune in tomorrow to find out!
