Another one for the aquatics!









"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.
