Contemporary colorful paintings of fun and figures.

There is a lot going on in this little painting. There are so many decisions to make along the way..sometimes it is overwhelming. These are some of the things I was thinking about: composition, creating a variety of brushwork that included soft edges and harder edges, painting convincing soft shadows, getting the light right, creating a sense of depth, and not least, painting a convincing scene of two girls with their fishing nets on a dock, with some sense of movement. This pond is a favorite subject of mine because it is right behind my house and my grandkids love to play there.
