Summer's Day, Finished



Finished today, put the detail of the shirts in, and played around with the contrasts. I would have liked to achieved brighter highlights in the hair, but unable to get the pastel to build up any further. I guess tooth overload!

I really do like this. It's one of those paintings where a moment truly has been captured - and with such a gentle touch!

It was such a beautiful day, the children were having such a lovely time, this was based on some photos I took whilst the children were playing with a giant parachute, thank you for all your comments!
