June Picnic

I take thousands of reference photos and many are of people who never know they're soon going to be featured in a blooming oil painting! Of course, if they knew, they'd pose and who wants that? This image was taken at a recent festival. I'm really intersted in painting figures now, especially where there are relationships to be deciphered. I want to create good compositions and paintings that illuminate a moment.
Oil on board, 18x24", $660
