It is a hot summers day, the sun is shining and the reflection is dancing across the waves behind a beautiful blond woman. The beautiful blond is wearing some fun bright pink sunglasses. It's a real summer scene. Matching the sunglasses is a big watermelon slice which brings a smile to the woman's face. This woman is, in fact, Kiki Sunshine, a blogger and yoga teacher living in Paris. I met Kiki when she was in London at Stewart Gilchrist's yoga class. I found Kiki so inspiring that I just wanted to paint her. As a model and a subject, she is so versatile to paint and has such an interesting face. I love this summer portrait of her, it just makes me want to book a flight to a beautiful beach somewhere and eat a watermelon.
