Sunbather:Field Study 7x5 oil painting

I had gone to McKinney Falls this morning and studied this reptile bathing in the light, which was challenging for me because the log it was on slowly rotated in the torrent of the upper falls. So, I did a quick gesture,drawing, and glanced back at the scene for the colors.


  1. Nice, I like how you sculpted the shell

  2. Thanks Danny,

    I tried to use strokes that went along with the planes of the shell, to suggest the structure a bit.
