This painting is from this bi-weekly challenge at Karin Jurick's Different Strokes Blog.
Here's the reference photo.
So I got to thinking about making it a vertical format, rather than horizontal, which means someone has to move. Then I realize I could position Dad Dude behind the boogie board, and that would be 1 less limb to have to paint.
It's Watercolor on Yupo board, 5 x 7 inches. It's impressionistic, since it's just shapes and dabs of color and value. And when you stand back, (No not THAT far back), it reads more dimensional. These seem to glow with more luminosity when scanned than they do in real life. In real life, the colors are a bit darker, a little richer.
Here's what a photo of the painting looks like after it's been varnished.
