Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. This is an acrylic painting done with gel medium and transparent layers that have been built up over an under painting. The original tone that I laid down was a yellow with a blue under painting. That way the colors worked with the subject matter.

That looks great! I like how much warmth you brought to the painting versus the original photo, especially in the skintones.

I love the tranquil feel of this painting. Colours are good, but I think you have one toe too many.

Thank you- isn't that funny? I never realized it until my nephew looked at the painting hanging on the wall and pointed it out. We all had a good giggle. It looks like I'm keeping it that way.
