Day Fourteen- 30 Paintings in 30 Days- Waiting

12x16 oil on canvas
This fellow was sitting on some steps next to the sidewalk we were walking along in Istanbul, and I saw the light hitting the back of his head and traveling through his ears and was struck with that "I've got to paint that!" thought.  So I positioned my partner near him in order to take "her" photo, and get his, as well.  So he was a very small detail in the shot, but it was enough information to finally, five years later (!!!!), paint him. A struggle, but an exciting one.  Woo Hoo!!!!

Love it. We do that don't we? Pretend we're taking one
photo and take another. Great portrait.
