View Full Version : "Hesitation"

Hi All

Here is my new work. I have been lately heavily inspired by the work of David Hockney and therefore tried to do one in his style. I tried to have some fun with this. Inspired by his work of "Pool with two figures" I tried to produce what I can only describe as a prequel to it. "Hesitation" takes the main subject staring down at the pool but just younger, staring down at the pool this time in his backyard. I guess painting is all about creating that story. Do let me know your comments :)

Brings back a lot of memories :-) I used to climb on diving boards and chicken out. I like your small details like the reflection of the pool lights and the straps on the patio chairs.

You are definately telling a story here! I can feel the hesitation - brings back memories for me too - of the high dive. :/

Thank you so much Jan and Karen. I am relatively new playing with acrylics and I am figuring it out still. Your comments are encouraging :)
