This is the second new painting, oil on canvas, 30cm x 40 cm. I call it Beach Volleyball Leap.
The reference for this painting is pencil sketches made when on holiday in Jamaica last year. The beach volleyball was very popular and I enjoyed sitting in the sand, drawing the players, who were a different lot each day. It was always mixed girls and guys, and some players were very good. All were enthusiastic! I took a lot of photos too. I tried to capture the luscious greens of the trees and shrubs growing in the grounds of the resort, with the beach sand bright from the setting sun.
