DSFDF Oil Painting

Karin Jurick hosts the Different Strokes for Different Folks blog. She provides a photo bi-weekly and different artists paint their interpretation. I decided to paint a cropped version and just sent this photo of my painting to her. Hope the photo is acceptable as the paint is still wet. The painting is 9" x 12" on gessoed Ampersand Bord.

I forgot to mention the palette used for the painting: Naples Yellow, Cad. Yellow, Cad. Orange, Cad. Red, Fr. Ultra. Blue, Paynes Gray and Titanium White.

Hey Ann...! I love paintings like this..paintings that let the viewer fill in the blanks. I can't help but wonder what that guy is thinking. I really love the far away yellow of the sky. excellent!

Wonderful, Ann! I like the way you cropped and came in close on the figure.
I have a blog award for you on my site. Liz

nice job, Ann.
Enjoyed your photos of the little Arapaho boy. I probably don't know his family but we live within just miles of the reservation from where he is from. Will be interesting to see your painting of him. The indian children are so cute.

Liz, thank you for your comments on the painting and that neat award! Hope you have been enjoying yourself painting. :)

Gary, thank you for visiting this blog and your comments. I loved the photos and paintings of your area, which looks to be a painter's paradise. One day I hope to make a trip to that area and go prepared with lots of discs for the camera.
