Getting Ready - New Textured Acrylic Painting

I was not entirely happy with the last 2 Tango paintings. Also, a couple of days back, I screwed up a new belly dancer painting big time that it will take some time to correct and post it. So I thought it was good to take a little break from the dancers and do something else. Maybe a little fatigue was setting in, I am not sure. I wasn't fatigued with figures as such though, so went back to my summer series.

It is awesome how after a day's cycling trip for a few hours, I came back with a couple of dozen photos and how many painting possibilities are there in those. I honestly did not expect this many paintings to come out of that trip. The little girl in this painting for instance, was not even my object of focus in the photo. I was clicking someone else and she just happened to be there in the frame. And later on when I was checking out the snaps, she called out to be painted. I am sure I have enough material for at least a dozen more paintings in this series.

I like this painting, the initial sketch was to my liking the first time itself and so painting was easy. When the initial sketch goes haywire, it screws up everything else that follows, needless to say. I hope you like it, let me know your comments.
