sunny























I like the contrast in this painting.
the colors are bright and happy, but the figure looks so melancholy.
The stark shadow so dark compared with the whiteness of the sun.
An interesting juxtaposition.

I love the study in contrasts, and the striped tights are pretty great too. It's funny all week I've been thinking of warm sunny yellow and blue and intending to use the combination in a composition, and here you've done just that!

You are right it's so sad at the same time!
