Pool and Poppies

Chatting in the pool with the giant orange poppies all around is magical.
I started this painting by covering the board completely in thick red paint. Then I outlined the figures with the cerruleun blue and white. By leaving the red to show through in part I got the reflections of the poppies.
The green surrounding the pool reflects onto Lynda's arm and her orange swimming costume matches the vivid colour of the poppies.

Do you think that there's a mermaid in the pool perhaps?!
