this artist’s perspective

When I was eleven we lived in Puerto Rico. The currents and riptide’s are unbelievable in late winter and spring. That year I got my first Mod Bikini! I was caught in a riptide and dragged out about one-quarter mile… my bikini top was AWOL when I reached shore! :0 The trials of teenhood! I bought a one piece later that day.
This tempura painting is a ‘quick draw’ sketch from a childhood memory. I did it in a childlike style to enhance the emotion of the piece.

I study and teach classical figure drawing and painting. It’s amazing how quickly one becomes comfortable with the human form. Students come in and avert their eyes, quickly look at the model and try to draw from memory. They get over it by about the third class. 🙂
