(69) Ah, Summer!

This is definitely an example of a painting that would be tough to do from life--for some reason that pesky water (and the swimmer) just won't stay still long enough to be immortalized in paint! I loved the shadows that were created at the bottom of the pool, offering depth to the painting--this was one that just fell off the brush, and one of my favorite pieces.
