The Watermelon Eaters
Yep, pulling out those reference shots from last summer and longing for this one! Kids at our annual Fourth of July block party chow down at the watermelon eating contest. They are so into it and enthusiastic that I was inspired to create a setting that reflected that enthusiasm. Splashes of Opera on the tabletop and the same color reserved with masking fluid splatters in the background helps to convey the action.
