Day 25 - Wading in the Shallows
I thoroughly enjoyed myself with this painting. I have never painted figures before in acrylics but after today I think I will be trying them more often. I used a photo I took of my daughters about 6 years ago while holidaying at a fishing village north of Perth. I seem to recall having to bribe them with chocolate to do this photo shoot. The photo of the painting hasn't come out too great. It is a little more obvious when viewing the painting that they are wading through water rather than sand! See reference photo below.
I was thrilled to finally paint from this photo as it has been on my "to do" list since taking the photo all those years ago. When I decided to do the challenge it was one of the first things I put on my list but today was the day I felt most inspired to tackle it.
