Central Park Stroll

  This painting was done for Lee Brown's A Day Not Wasted December challenge, from a photo he took while visiting New York in autumn. I particularly liked the lady strolling through the park - possibly on her way to or from work. I imagine her a fellow artist with her portfolio case under her arm. What I particularly liked about Lee's photo (besides the lovely fall colors, interesting lamps, and nice compostition) was the detail in the woman - she was a tad smaller in the photo, I gave her more prominence - her leather boots and bag, patterned skirt over jeans and the sweater that looked like it was chosen to match the season.

  1. Lovely painting! The fall colors look so misty and soft--slightly impressionistic. And your figure adds great interest.

  2. Love your colors in this, does give it a sort of crisp fall like day. And I think you're right to enlarge the woman, she is one of the main things that drew me to this photo challenge.
