This is my submission to Lee Brown's challenge at A Day Not Wasted. His photograph, which is much wider, shows a scene on a Dublin Street. It has 2 men in the foreground having a conversation - in fact, that is Lee's name for the photo.
But, as usual, I'm always looking for the "other" scene - the one in the background. And this one has it! This woman, with her wonderful green pants, is walking her bicycle along the walkway. With the warm tones of the bricks, wood & barrels as a backdrop, I could not resist painting this woman. And in making her pants sort of the star of the scene!
This painting took a few days to finish, and I only put the brush down a few moments ago (and picked up the camera). I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.
