Universal Studios



This painting was inspired by a trip that we took to America nearly 10 years ago. We visited Florida and were lucky enough to visit a number of theme parks whilst we were there.

I was at a loose end about what to paint and was attracted to the darks and lights in the photo reference.

Hi Kay - I like the figures on the left, well defined. Bet it was a great trip. I have not been to Florida in years and most likely it will still be a few more.

Hi Kay!
The darks and lights are wonderful adding depth to your painting.
I agree with what Holley said about the figures on the left.

Great scene full of activity and atmosphere. The colors and values are striking!
Thanks for you great comments on my blog. I'm still smiling about the "drowning" comment.
