Investigating the Streamflow

investigating the streamflow by marilynn z. nielson, 12 x 16 oil on board, SOLD

I couldn’t resist these two young boys enjoying the first warm days of spring.  It reminded me of my own two sons who always enjoyed playing in the water. I loved their hats, the water on the rocks, the rushes and the bright light and shadow. This was actually done from a photo my daughter-in-law brought to me.  She knows how I am always looking for something new to paint.  She is a great photographer and when she shot this scene, she knew I would love it.  I was able to use her photo as a reference, but I also visited the spot to get the right feeling and lighting. This was a fun painting to work on. ~ marilynn
