I love painting images of water during the summer
months.It was fun to sling the paint around and create
the look of splashing water!
Here are some of the images I considered before
deciding on my final composition.
When considering these images I decided to eliminate the
background information. Instead of going with the tube on a
white waterslide I put my subjects in a swimming pool.
The moving water and the splashes were more colorful
and better portrayed the movement in the scene. I increased
the contrast between the kids and the background
by making the sky (actually a waterfall) lighter.
