This picture was based on a visit to a beach at Ogunquit, Maine. The child was very intent on something that caught her eye beyond the sand she was packing away. I wanted to try something with more intensity than the normal color of sand, hence the red, orange and yellow colors with shadows in purple. Thinking of sand in those colors gave a my brain a workout! And, I made the child very lean rather than the child-like roundness of many children. The end result is an edgy look to a typical subject.
