Love the way you painted this and it also brought back some lovely memories.
I'm a sucker for backlighting, too; red hair just makes it more rewarding!
I'm a new subscriber and can tell that I am really going to enjoy your work. You captured this one beautifully! Colors say Spring too.
A beautiful silhouette!
I love backlighting too, it's gorgeous on that red hair! Love the colors in the jacket as well.
I love the relaxed gesture of the figure - it is so natural, and the back-lighting is beautiful, Taryn. Each painting of yours is like a little treasure.
I love the way that you were dealing with the background -- with minimal value change, only color temperature variations, and using textures and brushstrokes to hint the foliage and branches. The back lid figure is full of drama, yet the lacenciousness in the air was captured perfectly in the pose and the flow of the hair. One can almost feel the light-hearted feeling of spring in the air...
I absolutely love this onee Taryn. You are SO good at painting feeling. :))
