I showed one of my painting students the way to start her painting by painting this image of her son jumping off a dock. I struggled with getting all of the boy's left foot on the canvas without cutting off his toes. I finally got it! We liked this stage of the painting alot. This is a point in a painting where you have to decide how much farther you want to develop it - putting more details or not. When you want to keep a looseness, then you'd stop around this point. We'll see how it turns out.
