Daily Painting #165/"Free Men"/Original oil painting on panel 14"X11"
Another grouping of figures; a subject I shall be exploring more in depth.
This is a dear family whose last name happens to be "Freeman". I was thinking about the freedom and joy in the mountains (were they rock climbing?) and the upcoming 4th of July celebration. I just loved this grouping of figures; the contrasts, the cast shadows, the funny, colorful helmets and the posturing of each person. It was almost caricature-like.
It was a delight to paint this!
