A glimpse of a girl in a blue dress with a straw hat on a sand dune in Prince Edward Island, Canada led to this painting. I have always been attracted to landscape paintings with figure as the main interest. Now my skills have improved to such a level that I feel confident in trying out my own vision onto canvas. What do you think of my efforts?
|Watercolor sketch for the painting|
|I often develop a landscape from the faraway things first.|
|Developing the middle ground and foreground. Do you get the feeling that I am avoiding the figure? It's partly that, but it's also because I want to create a believable and livable environment for the figure first.|
