Awww, Timmy and Mary sitting in a tree ... I love it. Who doesn't like getting flowers from a boy ... actually, who doesn't like getting flowers period. Beautifully done. It really captures the sweetness of the moment.

I like the lighting you've created. And my favorite part is your girl. I love the colors you used for her dress.

I see this in a middle grade book(might have to be done in grayscale or inkwash.)

Hi everyone, thanks!
This scene actually was at my son's 3rd grade concert. The boys sitting on the floor and the girl walked by. One spoke to her. I took the photo of them, to work them into a painting. The dress is the actual dress she was wearing, the whole wardrobe is.
I painted this for my 'painting a child a day' project. :)I also
incorporated the flowers for the watercolor Wednesday post.
