I took a picture at Paddlefest, at Coney Island Park near Cincinnati, Ohio, a few summers ago of these two women readying their kayak. I was amused with their effort to attach the flamingo to a kayak.
This is the beginning washes to my drawing.
I put lemon yellow down for the grass to give glow to the lighter areas.
The next washes were laid in for the kayaks, flamingo, stone walls, the ladies skorts. I also began laying washes on the legs and giving them some definition.
