Farmers Market #9
Hats next to the Celery!
6x8in oil on canvas panel $125. SOLD
Only at a farmers market can you find hats and celery being
sold side by side.
The eternal appeal of hats obviously captured this young lady's
attention even though she is laden down with stuff.
Lots going on? Busy? Yes. I wanted it all. And why not, indeed.
It could be worse. I could have placed a hat on the young lady's head!
I really enjoyed the discovery in this one. It took about five engrossing
hours for this little piece of frustration to be completed.
Lots of, "off with its head" moments. Each one a lesson and I enjoyed it.
(At least it was not on video for everyone to see.)
Your eye should go to the light hat with red band and orange one first.
They are then linked to the young lady and her striped shirt.
If your eye goes to her first then the reverse in will happen. Either way
your eye will travel round the painting. (It was like
a repeat of my dilemma in FM #3 - scale or figure.) Her cast shadow
onto the hats in front completes an angle to lead back in.
I balanced the bright colors of the hats on the right with her purse.
