Drinking Water

This is for Virtual Paintout October 2015 Philippines challenge. It's oil on 10x10 canvas panel.

This scene with the girl in a slump getting drinking water and walking back home next to the ocean struck a chord with me. (ref)  While the background scenery is beautiful, it is sad that children growing up there do not even the basics, such as drinking water, readily available in their home. The bright color of the girl's skirt is a good contrast to the greyish elements everywhere else.
