Shovel Ready

6x8 Oil on Canvas

Figures are so difficult to paint which makes me think of Karin Jurick and her incredible talent.

Hi Karen nice picture, I like the way you wove in the red warmer notes into the foreground here!

I love the darks and highlights in the shadows of the little boy. I just love the little boy and his shovel.

This is a lovely piece, Karen. I particularly like the colourful, expressive way you've rendered the water. Great work.

There is no evidence of a struggle to paint the figure, this is precious!

Hi, Karen. The other Karen's great, but you have no trouble with figures, yourself. This is beautifully impressionistic, yet somehow accurate anatomically. What a great combination.

Love this little guy in such a lovely impressionistic setting.
