Acrylic on Panel
9 X 10The subject matter of this photo is of my art teacher's grandchild (the blonde) getting upset because she did not want to play soccer that day. The background is done in very loose strokes, as is the foreground, but to a greater extent. The focal point is the upset child and the converging line of the building in the background is pointing to her face. The bright colored jerseys give emphasis to the foreground and sets it about from the more neutral background. I had difficulty foreshadowing the arms on the girl in the front and it took me many tries and many corrections to get it right. The trees are not geometric at all, they are very organic and have implied lines.
