and then she was like...

 
Took this photo in Destin, FL a month ago. I loved the body language between the mom and daughter. The daughter is probably in the middle of telling some dramatic story and using her hands to give signs in case her mom does not understand. I painted this on a 5 x 7 "panel.

  1. This is fabulous! I love the title and subject - it's something we ladies can all relate to! The flashes of bright light give it a great amount of life and the curve of the back on the girl on the left is just beautiful.

  2. Really great! You captured the figures so well with so few strokes! Love the expression on the mom's face..she is listening intently to her daughter. Great skin colors, too!

  6. I always love your figure work and this one certainly did not disappoint! Your loose style and spot on values are a joy to behold. Really great skin tones. The rusty reds looks so beautiful next to the clear, turquoise water. I also like the way you have the figures positioned to the far right to allow for that nice long shadow.
