This started out as a sketch and color try out for the last addition to my season series.
I didn't really feel like starting on it but I felt like painting something that helps me get over my longing for summer, sun and warmth.
The more I doodled around and tried out color and lightning I knew it will be the finish to my series. The format is different and I will adjust and repaint the older three to match this in size and quality/style.
This is the first painting I tried to be a bit more brave with light and shadows.
Other then that - I was looking for a warm, sunny and soft airy feeling. I wanted her to have pretty red cheeks..even a slight hint of a bit too much sun..
Other elements are in this that I myself again link to summer..but I let you do your own interpretation
Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking
And since so much detail gets lost in the smaller size:
A lot of details get lost and look quite wonky on the smaller size.
