Portrait artist paints Play (in progress). Large painting of children on merry go round

This is still the block-in phase. I’m working on getting the colors and shapes just right.

I tried this subject matter (children on a merry go round) last year. This time I’m going at it differently. My vantage point is closer to the children, and the background is a rich warm color. I’m working on getting the red yellow and blue colors to support each other and then I plan to get the children’s faces.
