Acrylic on Panel
8 X 10This photo was taken in an airport on the way to France. The picture portrays an element of waiting and boredom because the girls are not engaged with each other. The girl in the middle is the focal point because the girls on both sides of her are facing her. Also there is a line implied by the girl on left line of sight that goes directly to the book in the middle girls hands. I simplified the background a great deal by taking out a counter and a window to make the background less important. The features of the girl on the right are not as detailed as the girl in the middle to make the right girl less important. I struggled with the left girl’s leg because it is crossed and without the foot showing, the perspective looks strange. Overall, I like how the painting turned out and the feeling it expresses.
