Day 38

This is a painting I did a while ago. It's based on the colours I observed whilst people watching one day. There's a shirt a guy was wearing, a dress his missus had on, the pint my friend was drinking. the bricks in a wall etc. I love painting in oils - they're rich and textured. I find that I start off with thin paint and gradually it gets thicker and thicker until I'm less painting and more sticking colour on. Yum.

Thank you!. It was fun to mix the colours a bit and to see what happened.
