I think artists are constantly on the search for the perfect plein air painting or photo to take. Their minds are like a camera and they're clicking, clicking, clicking as they walk, drive, and observe. Here a painting, there a sketch, here a rendering...it never ends! This little one is from my granddaughter's photo and I though it had the perfect blend of lights/darks and contrasting colors. Size: 5" x 7" on primed Gatorboard (loved the texture). Pastels: Great American and Farber Castell's.
