I began this painting yesterday. I like the way it looks right now as the woman seems to be working her way into the scene with her glasses and hat, while the boy is engrossed in his book. I am looking forward to the texture of the sand and the texture of her bathing suit which has little dots, but for now the flatness really appeals to me. I am going to make a coloring book for sure for my 2 year old granddaughter. It may not be what the art world would deem a proper introduction to creating 'art', but I had so much fun with coloring books when I was growing up that I have to give her the same experience.
