I knew when I began this painting that I wanted a young girl to sit on the water's edge with koi coming to meet her. I wanted a lot of texture with small details. To increase texture I added sand to her mahogany - rust colored pants. Her blouse is layer after layer of white paint and butter cream acrylic paint. This affect came together nicely to form a tunic top.
Young Nala is the starting point of a shower of stars that reach to circle the full, white moon. Lets not forget the tiny sparkle beside her eye. It's one of the many details to be enjoyed.
After nearly a full year with changes, additions, subtractions and much fuss, I have finally completed the last painting in the Inner Swim series. I have to say, I'm kind of proud of her.
