Painting - Watercolor
I have focused my detailed watercolor work on the subject of this painting - the young girl on a swing. Like the eye focuses on a subject, everything else is unimportant and leaves a blurred impression as in peripheral vision. The organic impressionist background suggests movement as do the girl's hair and T-shirt.
Like most of my action paintings of children, this is a hand-painted portrait from photo. To be clear, I only use photographs as reference material for my original paintings, often producing detailed pencil drawings on the canvas before I paint. My portraits are hand-painted original paintings done by looking at a photograph of the subject as if the subject were sitting in my studio. They are NOT painted over top of a mechanically reproduced photograph. Portrait price list: https://www.koehlerart.com/prices.htm. Send me your child's photo for a free estimate!
This is now the cover illustration for author, Reynold Jay's new book called ROSE AND HER LITTLE LOST KITTEN. You can purchase this delightful storybook for kids at http://www.koehlerart.com/gallery23.htm.
