Girl in white dress- Gouache on watercolor paper- 5 x 7 inches
I do go around in the house with my camera attached to my body. Always looking out for sunlight spreading some magic.
And I used my photos to make the painting above. Something I thought I would never do but I have now discovered it can be of incredible benefit if I have plenty of additional material- like drawings and written observations about light etc. In essence the camera has become an extension of my sketchbook. Another tool to help me know and remember. The little determined ' girlie-farm-girl' was painted from not one image but from information I selected from a series of photos I took a week ago when we visited a model farm.
And life right now is good. I am grateful.
This here is sweet.
