I remember the day I took the reference photo for this shot, while walking Gracie through Buena Vista park. The light and shadow was just at the right spot on the path.

To get these colors to “sing”, after my initial wash block-in (of Alizarin Crimson + Sap Green), I started by laying down the most intense color first, such as Fire Red directly out of the tube. Then I related all other colors to those initial spots.
