This is another composite picture... a week ago I did a quick sketch while waiting for the train at Claremont station. The sketch was of a man dressed in blue, sitting on a bench, in the background was the shadow of the overhead walkway.

It was a < 1 minute sketch, but I liked the composition so I did a warm-up painting using the sketch as a reference - a quick 10min painting which concentrated on tone and without pretending to be a real painting. I wished that I had had a camera with me...

Then I went to Karin Jurick's blog - the latest image was so similar that I just had to use it to fill the void left by not having a camera with me.

See paintings from the other artists for the challenge at DSDF.

Beautiful warm painting, love the addition of the bench and I appreciate you turning the figure in the opposite direction from what was provided. Well done.

Popped over real quick to take a closer look at "Waiting at the Station" ~ which I love ~ and spent the next hour enjoying your other works, as well as your other blog!

You got the mass of this figure - the way he slumps a bit but is still so substantial.

What a nice "flip" to the original photo...with the great addition of the bench. You really do have some wonderful figurative pieces on your blog.
