Business Break

10x20 oil on linen

Ask Castle Gallery about this painting.

To redeem my bizarre painting of models below, I had to post this gallery painting that I finished on Friday. This is the Driskill Bar in Austin. A few men taking a break from the meetings going on elsewhere in the hotel.

Sounds like it could have been a fun event. Nights have been a bit cool lately! Poor models (and artists)!
I like the painting in the bar. One thing that struck me was the bartender's elbow. Usually, we think of light coming forward and dark receding. But the man's dark shirt at the elbow makes it look like it is coming forward. I did a foot like that (dark) one time and that foot really came forward from the rest of the pose. I haven't purposely tried it, but it does seem to work.
