daily painting practice - Morning Cafe

Continuing with the theme of the week... figuratives. Today instead of just one I thought maybe trying to do a group would be fun...and challenging.

I like to put blotches of color into a painting sometimes to test how they go together.
The composition is a zig zag that leads your eye through the painting.

The Omaha Farmers market is in the background. Sitting in this cafe is the perfect location to watch the action on a Saturday morning. I almost called this one Breakfast with the Girls but the large guy sitting on the right didn't approve of it.

Peter . . .you have more guts (and drawing skills) than I do, that's for sure!

If you did this live, you really scoot around that palette fast!!

Best,
