Mommy and Me - Original Painting on Canvas

I just finished this sweet custom painting on canvas
and thought I'd show the painting in progress.

The Original Photograph of a Mother and Daughter

The Painting Process...
Step 1)  Paint a light tan sand color over the entire canvas  
Step 2)  While paint is still wet, paint light blue over top of the tan

Step 3)  Add a little teal blue to the water and a rolling white wave to the shore line
Step 4)  Dabbing in green paint for the trees and working a little green into the water

Step 5)  Mix in a darker green to the tree line - add a mixture of dk. green, teal and white to create the waves
Step 6)  Paint the two figures - the boat - and add a little brown throughout the painting

The finished piece of art - signed and glazed.
Acrylic on 5 x 7 inch canvas.
A small little canvas perfect for Mother's Day!
