Taking the Prize
Oil & Acrylic Painting
Quick Draw Grand Prize Winner
Recently, I won the Quick Draw Plein Air competition for the TBBCA Hyde Park Chalk Walk/Plein Air Festival. What is the Quick Draw all about? Basically, you have just two-three hours to capture the scene in plein air-live.
In the photo is the scene that inspired me. Two friends had come to hang out with me for the day and they with over to the restaurant for lunch. I told them that they would be my models and they were great! The painting turned out well. It was really fun to paint and the crowd got a big kick out seeing it develop.
The only thing is that now after letting it be for a while I think I might change the added text. What do you think? Keeps the words or take them out? I played with cropping it just to see. If I decide to paint the words out , the painting would basically look like this...just a little taller.
Let me know your opinion. Seriously, I need your help. Thanx-Princess
