Saturday Morning Coffee

(Click image to enlarge)

I composed this painting from three separate reference photos I took at the Eugene Saturday Market. The challenge, when painting the figures all in one painting, was to get the proportions and lighting correct. I struggled with that a bit.

As usual I did a lot of layering to get the brighter colors and darkened the shadows considerably to get the fuller 3 dimensional feel. I like how the newspaper turned out without using any real text or images. . .just lights and darks and abstract shapes.

Hi Tim-

You were right on about that looking like my dad. Your paintings are wonderful!
