Kelly By the Sea, oil on canvas panel, 11x14.  This one was done with a live model during an outdoor workshop with the famous artist Arthur Egeli.  He is a colorist, famous for the "mud heads" of silhouetted figures in backlit settings.  This is a difficult lighting condition to paint convincingly.  Mine was the favorite of his grandson's, but not a colorful as his.  

I like the backlit sarong, the reflected light on the model, and the water reflections of the mangroves.
