I got a running start on this painting today.  It’s 12×24″.

I homeschool my daughter half time so I usually only have about 2 or 3 hours a day to paint, and other things often fill that time.  But today miss lady Eowyn went on an all day field trip so I had a nice block of time to get this painting moving.

It’s important to me for this painting to be really innocent.  I still have quite a bit of work to do on her skin and swimsuit.  I want the suit to have that little girl baggy frilly feel to it.  And the warm sun to shine down on her.  I know exactly what she was doing because I was doing the same thing nearby.  Lying in the warm sun trying to stay warm on a sunny but not that warm of a day.  I’m sure I was wrapped in a blanket looking like a creeper with my camera.

thinking of creeps, how about that debate last night?
