I took the reference photo for this painting last summer at Playa Coromuel. This is the beach closest to the city where many families spend Saturday and Sunday in summer. A women was just floating, eyes closed, holding this hot pink beach ball unaware of the rest of the world. It was a good photo.
So far, I have only painted in the head since if that didn't work, the painting wouldn't. Then I began on the background and ball. I always have doubts at this point in a CP painting. But, posting both successes and failures is good, since everyone has them. I will keep you updated.
Sorry, I am having difficulty getting a good photo. It appears too pink. I believe that it will be better once all the water is in.
