This is a commission for a friend who spent time in Greece. The scooter has become the focus of the image but the subject hopefully still reads as a beautiful day on a Greek island. I had two umbrellas initially but, after some discussion with my studio visitor, I took it out. A new problem has come up: it looks like a red umbrella is riding the scooter. that will have to change. The shadows on the chairs are going to be shifted around as well. It's rather close to finished.

Christina is sitting for this one. I wanted to get up close but make her anonymous too. Not sure what it will be about in the end but for now, I am prevented from making a portrait of things.
Seeing the two WIPs together is very helpful. The gesture in the first one is more defined. I'll have to go back in and fix that. I also took the picture with a laptop so it is a mirror image. Another interesting learning tool!
