Rex Beanland, The Bridesmaids, watercolour, 9 x 12











This is the painting I did today as a demo at the Art In The Garden show.  It’s from a photo I took on a very sunny and hot day behind Eau Claire Market here in Calgary.  I tried to capture the strong sense of light.

The photo had this really interesting grouping of 5 people with 2 groups of 2 and one girl off by herself.  The only change I made to the photo was to make that last girl a little larger and bring her forward and to emphasize here quizzical stance.  I feel that gives it a much stronger sense of narrative.
