Girls of Summer by Sarah  Mac

Last year I went to a beach sculpture exhibit (the Swell Festival, Gold Coast) and I kept seeing these two little girls while I was there, they were having a day at the beach with their mother I think. They were so adorable and have been in the back of my mind ever since to draw or paint and I finally got to it!
So to these girls, whoever you are, thankyou for being my little muses for the day.

Watercolour and pencil. 25 × 30cm hot pressed watercolour paper.
