A sketchy start

Sketches for a painting of family members at a Florida dock by artist Jo Myers-Walker

Arranging the characters to tell the story

By the time a painting is finished, I’ve done a scene three times. I start with a sketch, moving and overlapping shapes using tracing paper to plan the composition. Here I’m experimenting with the arrangement and gestures of a family at a dock in Florida, and perspective for the boats on the water.

Update:
See my Commissions page for more of the story!
