54 x 60 cm
Oil on triple primed linen canvas

I just loved to paint this!
I tried to get that flow of the water in there by doing some super fast strokes (hopefully accurate anyways). 
Most of this, like the background, is painted with a very large brush in a very short time like in 5 minutes or so.  :)
Painting the figure itself took a quite a few hours and a lot more delicate approach with the Rosemary&Co´s super brushes. Some of those colors are put straight from the tube on canvas, like reds and ochres, just to push the saturation.
I been blurring the edges and reconstructing them back to sharp ones.. like 7 hours without any breaks or interruptions. Whee, just for the edges! Its so important to me to get em right :)
Well anyways, I hope it looks loose and accurate at the same time. It was a great adventure for me and I learned a lot.
