"Ladies for the Line Up"
19.5" x 13"
I started out with this group of swimmers and gradually developed the brushstrokes that appealed to me. It felt more water-like to have the movement of the strokes down the paper. The grouping also evolved into a more cropped version which helps keep the eye focused on the swimmers in the middle.
Edit: Seeing the painting online made me realize it needed more color.....So here it is - colorized! And now I need to stop already....But I do like it better with the addition of the oranges and reds.
