I am currently working on painting of the ocean and pulled this drawing from my files.  I completed this this past spring/early summer.  I drew this from an imagined scene but, think it would have been better if drawn from life.  Perhaps the lighting would have been sharper, lines crisper and perspective less dream like.  I like the subject matter (the interesting swim cap and bright sunlight).  So I would like to use it and am brainstorming on a different perspective for an oil painting.
