11x14 watercolor by Liana Yarckin
This is the sister to "Garden Girl". Who knew when I took these photos so long ago of our little playgroup that I would be inspired to explore them in watercolor. This darling little girl actually had a second watering can in her left hand while she was pumping the water, while she decided to go ahead and get into the giant tub of water. I think I would like to explore this more, do a few more studies for a high key painting with the bright sunlight. I got the sunlight right on her leg, hair and right arm. Also, now that I look at this, her left arm needs work! Oh, my don't look. The wash tub was all lopsided in reality.
I am so glad I finally started this challenge. I like the pressure of what am I going to paint next and having to move on quickly.
