Alana with Fan
About this artwork
Artist Sherri Aldawood posed her model, Alana, in her backyard garden on a warm summer day. She positioned in her the shade of dense green plants and glowing flowers, taking advantage of the soft dappled light falling across the scene. My challenge for this painting was to maintain the feeling of a shady spot in the majority of the painting, while showing just a hint of sunlight coming through the trees, says Sherri.
