I wanted to paint the gesture of the woman in my painting, Shopping Outdoor Market. The woman is my focal area; she is located at the Golden Mean. There is the greatest contrast of light and dark values (gray scale). I liked the pattern I created on the coat. I used one point linear perspective. Viewers enter my painting from the bottom left corner. Viewers are stopped from leaving the painting by the stand of fruit in the background.
This is a digital painting using traditional oil painting techniques and a painterly approach. I used virtual brushes and paints (Corel Painter 12 and Intuos5 drawing pen and tablet).
