A Watchful Eye 14x14 oil on linen panel black frame with gold lip
This woman and child is a favorite subject for me lately, and I have enjoyed painting them in multiple poses. Another view is available here on my site.
This photo was taken at the end of the quick start I typically do when I begin working. You can see that I paint in thin transparent layers to start and then build up texture and varied color over that to finish.
I'm amazed at how quickly the days are flying! I thought summer was supposed to be more relaxed. Our days are full and busy and I lose track of time easily.
No days like this chilling on the beach until late in the afternoon. My favorite time of day at the beach starts about 5:30 pm. I like to have a glass of wine and enjoy the cooling sands as the sun dips lower.
