This painting was inspired by a photo posted by a friend on Instagram. She’s a professional photographer always on the lookout for cool shots, and this clearly was one of them. When I saw the photo, I immediately felt that this boy playing in the sand, the lake looking so calm and the barge in the background are just crying to be painted. So, I grabbed my Wacom tablet, pinned the reference photo to my desktop and started painting.
I chose to do this painting in a modern impressionist style because I wanted it to be a bit hazy, just like a haze in late spring when the water just starts getting warmer.
