Painting children in gardens in Oils
Little Ashton posed among the hydrangeas bushes outside her home this past summer and I completed this 24 x 30 oil to match the one I created last year of her sister. The vivid blues of the flowers matched the blues in the water of her sister's creek side oil and the parents have redecorated a room to display both oils.
Little girls especially are so engaging in garden settings and although the hydrangeas were not this plentiful nor the brick walkway actually there, an artist can and should take creative liberties to enhance any setting.
