Painting No. 79 - Early Bird

8" x 6" - Oil on Canvas Board
Available for Purchase

No. 79 is the last of the ones from Amelia Island for the year and features a lady hunting for shells early in the morning. I had gotten up early to try and catch the sunrise and she happened to be walking by. She was a long ways off but I was able to crop in and not look like a stalker.

This is the first real one of the year with a person in it and for good reason. It's really hard. In your head the colors you choose to paint people are totally different from what is really there. This lady is a bright orange paired with a muddy orange/brown but that's what was there and following it makes it look real.
