Oil on hardwood Panel
I finally took the opportunity to paint a portrait of my favorite CHP officer.
I wasn't very excited about doing the motorcycle but when I started working on it, there were interesting challenges and choices
The reference photos were taken in an urban setting but it was way to cluttered therefore to simplify the focus I eliminated much of that. It did however make the background confusing at times while working on it.
Lots of rolling hills in the Sonoma area
We love and appreciate this man
Below is another attempt which didn't work as well as I wanted. The motorcycle is not the same machine as the first one
This is the same size work, pictured on the California coast
