-  Messing About with Paint   -  The Moment

Oil on Canvas 78cmx102cm

A couple sitting at the Heads.

I wanted capture the joy of the moment. Bodies coiled with mirth. 

A bit of a fight as I wasn’t getting the figures to ‘jump’ from the composition. Instead, they were fading into the background. 

One of those days when the tonal aspects weren’t working for me. 

Their small size also giving me problems.
