Scanning for Dudes


sold

Here is my entry for this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge. The reference photo is from a recent trip to Santa Cruz, CA. The sun was barely out, which made it a challenging photo. But what was really tough, honestly, were the foreshortened bodies! I had to measure like crazy. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Love this. Beautifully shaped figures, and I love all the neutral with just bits of color that sing. I'm posting this on Pinterest!

Well heck! You should be happy with the outcome because it is awesome! Love how minimal you kept the brush work. So fresh!! Love how you added the sunlight and kept the lady on the right in the mix.
