My art teacher goes on hiatus in the summer - how dare he have a life with his wife and kids! haha - but now I am back to class and loving it. I finally finished my picture!
My buildings are not quite plumb, but I like the feeling of the man going from the real to the slightly surreal...the alley looks ominous.
The original photograph that I did this from was torn out of a National Geographic magazine. I was attracted to the deep shadow and the gorgeous oranges and yellows and reds in the sunset? sunrise? light.
I'm going to hang it in the bathroom.
