Farmers Market #2
8x6in oil on canvas $125. SOLD
My second in this series. This was an organic stall and very well
stocked. That is California for you - healthy is a way of life.
I am from re-fried bean country... love them... but we do eat lots of salads
to balance our cravings for Mexican food.
I had a painting binge on these market scenes. I finished four
over the weekend. Fun, but not as easy as I thought they would be.
On this one I painted a composite of three photos.
My focus was to try and capture back-lighting
for a box to carry all the stuff
I liked his position with
the back-lighting, but
what a shame there are
no fruits of vegetables.
Here are fruits and
vegetables with the
light at back.
I painted the vegs pretty
much like this, but had
to remove the tomatoes
at the bottom and replace
with a more neutral color.
I found the red came
forward too much.
