This was painted for the A Day Not Wasted June challenge. The challenge photo was terrific quality with a wonderful SFO red trolley car and lots of other interesting stuff. But the first thing I zeroed in on when I looked was what I thought was a woman texting, and that is what I decided to paint. I wasted tons of good stuff with my cropping - probably because I have had gestures on the brain recently.
P.S. I went to look at my little painting on ADNW and I had to laugh. I think I may be marching to the beat of a strange drummer :)
P.P.S. I wish I marched to the other drummer. The other paintings at ADNW are good! Go Look. Now.
6x6 oil on canvas
This was painted from a Rookie Painter reference image.
I painted the little birds twice. On this one I gave them a different color and a windowsill to sit on. It was a challenge to keep the birds ceramic and their beaks sitting right.
