Monday People



Teaching in NYC last week, I got a few photos of these people. The safety vests and everyone else in black made for a dazzling, out of my series, painting subject.
But never one to leave a fine painting alone I tipped the people by cutting the paper cockeyed and making a few leaning marks in the figures. A more dynamic painting.

Amazing the difference the tilting makes. Thanks for sharing your painting path. Your work is simply stunning! Love the colors. Cheers!

Great image!!!! A new series about in the works?
So great to see you Sue, last week. I am looking forward to next time.

I am so inspired! I never thought of purposely tilting the subject for effect, although sometimes things get wonky just because I have trouble drawing a straight line (which I think are highly over-rated anyway).
