Caught Napping!

Caught Napping

7x5in  oil on canvas board  Not for Sale

This is for the Daily Paintwork challenge of a seated figure. It was from a photo taken in Mexico. The poor woman sat and fell asleep in the blink of an eye. I miss the days we could go over to Juarez for a meal or shopping.

Artist Note:

I was about to throw in the towel but decided to just go with it. I am going to work on this some more in a different technique. I have to give it some space/time to see it clearly.

  1. Oh, I like this a lot! The edges are great and so is the slightly slumped position of the sleeping figure. Very well done.
