Too Deep? - Impressions of a European Summer

This lady is one of my favorite references in this series. I loved her pose, how she was treading carefully and slowly into the water. And the light and shade of course. While the dancers are mostly people with figures to die for, this series is more about "normal" people. If I were to paint myself, this is how I would look, quite out of shape. That's what makes this series appeal to me as a viewer, and as a painter approaching each image. If every woman I painted had an hourglass figure, I am sure I'd get bored too soon!
