This one is a little different for me and so much fun! I have been recently studying the works of Karin Jurick. She is a natural media artist who lives in Atlanta, Ga. and paints incredible people paintings among many other things. If you would like to check her out at http://www.karinjurick.com/
Her paintings have given me a whole new "vision" and her style is something that I admire very much.
Ralph and I drove by this couple waiting for a bus and I yelled "Wait!" Stop! I need a photograph of that hat and those shoes! Ralph quickly made a quick U-turn and I took this photograph from across the street. I used mostly the palette knife set to my own adjustments but I also used Den's Oil Blender brush for the background. I also decided to paint out the post between them to eliminate the distraction, then as always I finished in Adobe CS4 with color adjustments and final framing by adding texture. When I look at his expression, I can hear him thinking "Are we really going out with that HAT again???
What do you think he is thinking?
