As I mentioned in the write up about this painting on DPW... Those who have taken a workshop with Nancy Tankersley may recognize the photo this was taken from. I painted it in Nancy's workshop and she gave me permission to use her photo and to sell the painting if I chose. I really liked the way this one turned out. The photo I used was simply black and white. I had to make up the colors. I made it a beach rather than grass. It could have been either from the photo. The woman's bending over posture created an appealing shape.
I really feel like I learned a lot in Nancy's workshop. If you get the opportunity to attend one of her workshops, I can definitely recommend them.
