Three Friends

I attempted this subject a few years ago and it didn't go so well.  
The image is of three of my dear friends leaving a restaurant after a birthday celebration. 
I rarely paint from photos when the subject is "posing"
because, well, they look posed!
I prefer to capture a more natural moment in time.   

For this, I tried to focus more on the big shapes and fun colors.
And the happiness. 

"Three Friends"
6 x 6
I did this for my GJWP challenge this month. 
Subject: "Three"


  1. Nancy, the painting really works, even though they are posing. It is fun and full of life, makes me smile.

  2. What a great "every stroke has a purpose" painting! It IS a very happy painting.
    Speaking of happy- you made my day by leaving me a comment, so wonderful for me as the novice to hear from a "pro". Thanks so much.

  3. I have to ask, it that Page on the right? You captured her, if it is, just in the gesture and hair.
