Day 5 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days

Yellow Bucket
8x8 oil on canvas panel
I am in the groove now.    The most difficult part of the process today was the drawing with the child leaned over like this and the background.  The photo had such energy and movement in the background but I wanted the child to stand out.  I grayed down the water which made her pop.  Love it when I do something right.


  1. Great gesture! I can almost feel the splash of the water. Nice painting!

  2. Mutual admiration club..good stuff you are doing. In the groove? Hope it rubs off on me soon. Beautiful painting

  3. Wonderful figure and your water looks like it's moving! Lots of action here! I love it!
