“The Hesitant Swimmer” watercolor on gessoed masonite


This piece is 3.5 by 7 inches $50.00…. no need for glass this painting can be framed like an oil.

This fun piece was inspired by a photo the Tega Cay art league is painting as a group project.   Their photo is of four ladies laying in the sand on the beach, the four gals are a bit older and are all big ladies.  I chose some elements of the photo but decided to put in a child and have them walking down to the water with the lady in the dark green suit not really wanting to go in and the lady on the right end a little timid as well. I like the idea that they are all going in together.  I also gave them realistic bodies and tried to give them a feeling of camaraderie.
