I took the original photograph of these adorable girls while I was on a cruise recently. Only kids were brave enough to get into a pool when it was in the 50s outside.
I toned the canvas gray. After it dried, I drew in the figures with a burnt umber & ultramarine blue mix. I'm kind of liking the dark lines left from the drawing lines that are still showing. Now I have to decide whether or not I will leave them.
Another couple of layers and this study for a larger painting will be complete.
