Hats

This is my contribution to the Wednesday Stamper challenge on the theme of hats.
Why don't men wear bowler hats to work anymore? I think these men look rather dashing in theirs!
I have watercoloured, gessoed and sponged colour back on top to achieve depth of colour for the top layer, and then watered down the colours for the bottom layer. I used AI to colour the buckle.

Fantastic colouring and a beautiful image. I've also been wondering these day why men (and women alike) don't wear hats anymore.
