Lifeguard


I painted this as part of the "Different Strokes Challenge". One of the things I like most about doing these paint outs is the variety of subject matter that I would not ordinarily have thought of using.
I used a very heavily textured canvas panel, 4x4 for this. Its listed on my Bonanzle for sale here

This is great, Kathleen! I really like how you cropped the image, and the texture in the paint sets this one up and above. (Have to say that I think your plein air of the bird bath in your yard is absolutley lovely.)
