"Market Color"

Here is a recent painting. I like the look of this one with all the reds, oranges and yellows.
There are a few detail shots below so you can see the paint marks better. I hate putting up a large file of the whole painting, sorry. You'll need to come by the gallery to see it in person.

I'm real happy with how the light pants and shoes came out.

Hi again Frank!

Beautiful composition and rythym using the arches and pole...color and relaxed gestural quality of your figures! Same quality as your last piece!Good stuff!

OMG... I'd LOVE to come by to see it in person... But I doubt it would be there by the time I got there!! It is really striking, Frank!

Such wonderfully rich, vibrant colors

Mick Carney said...

Great colour and love the composition, but the 'highlight' for me is the way the shadows lift the degree of realism in the reading of the piece.

Another winner, Frank! The shapes are placed very well. Composition and color are first rate!

Thanks Mike.
I know, I've been a little lazy on the posting lately. So, I just added one more recent painting.
Hope all is well with you.
