"Muted Commuters"

6"x6"
The very quirky assignment for the latest Different Strokes blog. We had three weeks to complete this one and I went almost to the last day. I had printed the image up, but had it kicking around the house all this time. Well last night it felt like I could tackle this and really had fun with it. It seems I try to incorporate my splashes and droplets in all the DSFDF challenges. Or maybe it's just me and I just like them..

I really like this painting. One of the best interpretations on the DSDF challenge. (I had thought about sticking with watercolor, but decided to do it in oil...which I haven't used in more years than I'd like to say! Result was determined by the challenge of getting the paint on the canvas!)

What a fantastic interpretation of this most difficult challenge! Looks like you really had fun too.

I love your blog...makes me want to dig out my watercolors, if I can find them.

Wow, nice contrast of expressive brushwork with the geometric floor grid.

Hi..looking at your painting, I feel" This is what I should have done!"... I kept this photo for a long time but was too intimidated to attempt all three figures in watercolor! Great work, hats off!...

Love your version of the DSDF challenge- the droplets and all. I have been procrastinating on this one also - think i might just let this one pass.
