It’s an absolute privilege when I encounter an artist that allows me to photograph him/her while they work. This artist was cleaning a few brushes when we walked up to see his work. I asked if I could photograph him and he nodded his head in approval. I was thrilled!
The time is approximately 2:30, the air is starting to get a bit nippy and the sun is now starting to hide behind a few clouds, peeking out here and there. The building the artist is painting is a small restaurant, although not very clear, there is a man sitting by the window.
He studied the subject as we watched, mixing his paints carefully and wiping it off his brush, mixing again until he had what he was looking for. What a wonderful God given gift to be able to capture on canvas what we see with our eyes. Amazing!
A close up of his artwork. In this photo you can clearly see the man in the window. I wish I could have stayed around longer to see if he would include the man on the bridge. However, as you may know an artist can not be rushed and the multiple strokes he had taken took some time.
This week Michelle’s Weekly Photo Challenge is – Threes. A great challenge and one I hope you get to participate in. Visit the site to see some wonderful posts by fascinating bloggers.
