Smoke Break

18x24" Oil on Stretched Linen

A re-post of last week's painting with many adjustments.  The painting was inspired by a photograph of the subject as he was leaning against a white wall, next to a flat white door.  This wall was in a breezeway, with indirect sunlight coming from two different directions, resulting in a flat appearance with little contrast in light and dark.  One strong source of light creates believable dimension.  Had to get creative here...
