Skinny Dipping: A Painting
I am finishing up a novel that takes place at the lake where we hang out in the summer, and I decided to paint a picture from it--just for fun. I've bought the canvas, and a couple new tubes of paint and one new paint brush, to supplement my collection.
And I've chosen the scene to paint. It's a skinny dipping scene at night. So. now, where do I start? I know what my characters look like. I chose people online to model them after. The couple have been out on a boat that's just like our Chris Craft Sea Skiff, and I have pictures of that.
So I started by assembling some major components of the scene in Photoshop. I found bodies of the two characters and pasted in their heads. And, of course, the boat is in the background. I have a start to my painting! Pretty rough, but a start!
Stay tuned to see how it turns out!
