Flower Market- colorful farmer's market visit

Flower Market                   oil                        9" x 9"   
I don't usually post a photos I work from, but thought it might be an interesting change. Here you can see how I edit a picture and then (hopefully) strengthen the composition when working from a picture source. The tough part in most photos of this sort, is honing down too much information and trying to remember the feeling of the scene. The photo is below and it's from a Jackson, Wy. street market some time ago.

    L'ambiance des marchés a quelque chose de magique...
    Gros bisous, je vous souhaite beaucoup de bonheur et de santé en ce jour de 1 mai.

  3. I love how you painted this fabulous market with very loose dots creating the sensation of lot of people...without really painting them .
