Cruising Through 10x8 oil SOLD

I was back out in Irvine Park Sunday. It was a nice day with walkers, skaters and cyclists out on this back path in the park. It is a good place to paint because it offers distance with hills and mountains. I usually stand on this path to paint the river bed that is on the left of this path, but today I decided to paint the path. I added the cyclists in the background when I got home. I am a bit chicken when adding figures and bikes. Hopefully you knew that is what they are before I told you, but if not I'm still working on these types of things. Figure I will get it if I try and keep trying. Hope everyone had a nice weekend.

Looking good! I like the distant figures and I'm glad you added them, though I admittedly avoid them myself most of the time.

Dori, you did an excellent job on this, I knew exactly what I was looking at. I love the composition and your brush strokes as well as color. Well done!

Great job Dori...you did not need to explain a thing!! I love your figures!

Yes I absolutely knew they were cyclists, and I like that there is just an indication of them. I think anymore would have been too much.

There is something different about how you are laying on the paint lately...is it something you're working on in particular? it's intriguing.

Very painterly and you are getting your message through just fine. I too knew what they were.

Loved the painting and the figures add interest!
