Last July I got a good start painting this sketch of my sister and her barefoot child. I liked the body language between the two of them but had trouble with the hillside above the pond. When I had to stop before finishing, I put it aside thinking I would get to it later. Tonight I added some lights on the hill and the right side of the water and that seems to have fixed it for me.
This is a 12 X 12 gouache sketch on black paper.
