So many choices to make while painting... but 2 things I knew for sure was that I wanted my 2 gates to be subtle yet noticeable; and that I wanted the blues in the sea & sky to be similar yet contrasting. Also, I thought I'd be painting the girl with more detail, but decided to stop as soon as her form properly emerged.

I'm drawn to portals (gates, doorways, windows, etc.) and this scene inspired an "open portal" painting idea, with the 2 gates on either side of the girl as she climbs higher.

I'm traveling with The Virtual Paintout group again, and this month we're meeting in The Philippines for some virtual painting via Google Street Views. Here's a direct link to the spot I've decided to paint: https://goo.gl/maps/sVcZsuMKY6y
