Fisherman


I did this quick study from Palo Alto art center this afternoon, last time I painted there was one year ago, the challenge for painting there is the lighting is not perfect...

By the way, if you live near south bay of San Francisco, and you know some good locations, please let me know, maybe we can paint some Plein Air together.

The brushwork is amazing. I love the way you made the background and skin tones the same saturated, intense color and then kept the hat and clothing very neutral. It's fabulous.

Thank you guys!
I thought the face color is too similar to the background color but it's too late to change it while the model was there...
I am glad people liked it!
