    What a wonderful piece!! So delicate and just shows such warmth and love….
    this is amazing. It looks as though you have many more years to capture this beautiful child with your amazing style!!!! I guess I could have just said “fantastic”!!

  • Thank you for such a nice comment! He’s now 13 years old and has lost all the cute chubby curves. The reference photo was taken somewhere in southern Maine – probably somewhere near York. I noticed that’s where you live now.

    Instant favorite for me. You know from my own work that children playing on the beach is one of my favorite subjects. You did an excellent job with this, just love all your watercolours anyway.

  • Thanks, Jim. I’m just thrilled to have finally finished a painting this summer when the kids have been home from school. Yay!!!

    A fave for me too Lora! I love the way the cool blues of his clothes interact with the warm background and foreground. A wonderful composition for artists to enjoy!

  • I’m glad you noticed the warm/ cool interaction. I was hoping the cool blue wasn’t overpowering the warm feel of the painting.

    I love this, Lora. It’s absolutely wonderful. The luminosity of the paint is great. Nice work all the way around.

  • Thank you, Marsha for your kind comment. I really had fun with the shadow and getting it to glow. I used windsor red, new gamboge, and cobalt – always works great to get that glow.
