Oil on Gessoboard
I have a lot of fun with the kids going on little field trips. This is from when we went to Kidspace in Pasadena, a great Children's museum with bugs, climbing, water and tricycles. This is another painting where I turned my photo upside down. I really liked the shadow helping to create some contrast. The shorts were a bit of a challenge...What do you focus on? Local color, in shadow versus in light and then add the pattern, or the other way around?
