Mi Casa, Su Casa


mi casa, su casa 8 x 10

Here's my first painting taken from the day in Santa Barbara.  This gent was napping at a bench in the Paseo Nuevo.  There nothing better than an afternoon nap! 

I did do a little detective work when I was taking pictures of people.  I  tried to look like I was taking a bunch of  pictures of buildings and whatnot, but I was really fascinated with the people. :)    This is watercolor on bristol board and a little white acrylic for highlights.

This is so captivating. I mean it's just a guy on a bench, but why do I want to stare at it?
And the fact that it came from a photo but is not exactly like the photo makes me like it even more.
