Friends Relaxing In a Sidewalk Cafe 18x24 Oils on canvas panel
Work in progress - April 7, 2010
This painting came about after looking at many of Jilly's posts in her Menton Daily Photo blog. This painting is combination of several of Jilly's photos - four, if you're counting.
This is a first "rough draft"; I have more work to do with the people. The restaurant seems OK now I think. But the people . . . . . ?
Work in progress - April 8, 2010
I made a "few" changes to just about everything; the people, the mirror the doors to the restaurant blah, blah, blah and blah. The waiter (wait person?) still seems to be more of a mannequin than a person, though. I am beginning to be pleased with this painting.
I need to have the lady in the red sweater resting her elbow on SOMETHING instead of just hanging in the air! Dang!
Another few hours and I'll stop putzing around with this painting. Enough, already!
FINISHED - April 11, 2010
