On Vacation



What a great way to spend a quiet Sunday...PAINTING...something I haven't being doing much of lately. This is for Sheila Tajima, for her moleskin book. She requested everyone paint something that they love. Well I love, love, love figure paintings and of course trying to paint them myself. I wasn't sure what to do for her at first, then found this cool photo that I took of a group of Japanese tourists. Thought Sheila might get a kick out this.

  7. This is one of my new favorite pieces by Vern.
    I like the composition and the shadows. You can feel the sun. The postures/personalities are rendered exquisitely.
