7"x 5" Oil on linen panel.
Lately I've had a hard time finding things to paint. I have a lot of still life photos in my computer files that I have been shooting over the last few years, but changing my style and changing up subject matter, I have gone looking for other sources. WetCanvas has a good library of copyright free images shared by its members and I've found some good reference there.
This latest painting is from a member know as "Lexiashea" and the title of her photo is "Child at Beach". I was drawn to this delicate and fair child, just loving the porcelain like quality of her pink skin in the cool light. I hope that is what I have captured in my painting today. I'm having so much fun painting figures after the couple of years of fruits and vegetables. I'll be painting those also but hopefully in a new way.
