This is the painting I did today as a demo at the Art In The Garden show. It’s from a photo I took on a very sunny and hot day behind Eau Claire Market here in Calgary. I tried to capture the strong sense of light.
The photo had this really interesting grouping of 5 people with 2 groups of 2 and one girl off by herself. The only change I made to the photo was to make that last girl a little larger and bring her forward and to emphasize here quizzical stance. I feel that gives it a much stronger sense of narrative.
