CHANGE OF PACE

AT THE SCULPTRESSES BOOTH   14x11   oil on linen  

A great way to dust off the cobwebs and shake out a few wrinkles is to try something totally outside of what you've been painting.  It tests your drawing skills, compositional thinking, use of color and approach.  It's been awhile since I've done anything figurative.

This, of course, is not a plein air painting.  It's composed from several photos I shot while visiting with a friend at an art fair.  I've been looking at this composition idea for a number of months and decided to just get it out of my system.  Lot of fun applying things I'm learning through my plein air work.
