|In the shade of the pear tree|
Oils 16" x 20"
At the weekend I persuaded my sixteen year old daughter to pose for me in the garden. She wasn't very keen, and only stayed in position for half an hour in total, with rest breaks! Luckily it was long enough to get all the shapes and colours down and place all the shadows. I was then able to carry on with it a while longer relying on my memory and imagination. This is just the kind of thing I'd like to do more of... but I need to find a willing model!
