DENIM (12 x 9 Oil on canvas panel)
This is my latest attempt at Karin's DSFDF project. The reference photo was terrific, and the thing that caught my eye was the jeans. I love to paint the light as it catches the folds in fabric. I made the door a burnt red orange to help bring out the denim. The block wall has been simplified a bit to emphasize the blues. The canvas was toned with a deep dark red and and grid lines were used to help me transfer the image to the canvas.
