I love to bike ride. While on a ride, we came upon a group of young boys taking turns swinging/jumping from a rope into the Delaware River. Classic image of daily life in a rural town! Snapped some quick photos. Immediately upon arriving home, began some sketches of these young men. Ready to begin the painting. Watercolor sticks to sketch with, watercolors, oil sticks and oil paints all onto Oleo Paper, (oil and watercolor receptive heavy paper). A great memory of innocent youth, perhaps yours? I hope you will enjoy viewing.
Archival framing advised.
