Caught in the Rain

16 x 20 oil on canvas
I take several reference photos and often I find what I like to call "collateral images". Tucked away in the corner of photos are lots of images that I didn't have my view finder set on. Thanks to digital imagery, we can blow up these images and create new ones.
I need LOTS of practice painting people, so I thought I would paint a few of these found images. I have a long way to go in painting people, but I think I was able to capture the irritation felt by this young woman after being caught in the rain.

Hi Catherine,

I think you've caught her irritation perfectly. Super painting.

I know what you mean about digital images. That's a great feature.
