Oil painting on gessobord
This crowd of youths waiting in the shade of a building caught my eye while on a painting holiday in Spain, and I took a reference photo for future reference. I was particularly interested in capturing the different skin tones - including the additional challenge of the tattoos - plus the different clothing, stances and body language each individual possessed.
