I made this painting for a commission and I really had a great time with it. First I painted 2 studies on 2 separate days right at the same time. After I decided on the main color scheme and the positioning of the forms I brought the big canvas out on location. Its a challenge doing such a large canvas outside rather then in the studio. Its hard just to see around the canvas to see your subject. I was out there for 3 days straight for about 4 hours each day. Then I put a bunch of studio time in working with the color relationships and adding detail.
