Alice In Wonderland The Sulky 5 Of Spades

...she heard one of them say, "Look out now, Five! Don't go splashing paint over me like that!"

"I couldn't help it", said Five, in a sulky tone.

In acrylics on watercolour paper, a copy of the original Alice in Wonderland illustration by John Tenniel/John Macfarlane.

It shows the 5 of Spades with a dripping paintbrush in his right hand and a tin of red paint in his left. Painted on a light green background, he is wearing a red hooded cape, mustard coloured stockings and brown leather shoes. His body is the card after which he is named. He looks to be in a sour mood.

If you've read this classic Children's book you'll know he's having a quarrel with two other gardeners, the 2 and the 7 of Spades. They are in the middle of painting the white roses of a rose bush red! The 2 of Spades has asked him to stop splashing paint around and he gets a little defensive. You can see the 2 of Spade's pot of paint on the ground in front of the 5 of Spades.
