Painting a Moving Target

My goal this summer was to teach myself how to paint
groups of figures from life.
In another week, all my beach models will be gone
so I did a few quick studies yesterday. 
These gals, lined up in the sun were a real challenge 
because they kept getting up! 
Six Babysitters
8 x 8 



I quickly mapped them out in red acrylic
so when they went for a swim, 
I had something to work with!

I'm using an Open Box M, a very limited pallet,
and am taking pictures, 
but not looking a them until I've finished! 
A great way to work quickly and 
spontaneously.
