Roy and Patty


roy-and-pattyThis painting is of Roy Gentry and Patty Wells.  Roy is the person featured in my last post.   They are sitting in Hinkle’s Hamburgers in Madison, Indiana.  I have used both linear and atmospheric perspective.  You can see the linear perspective when you look at the angle of the tables.  The atmospheric perspective shows the closer items larger than the ones further away.  The chairs that are closer are painted larger than the ones further back.  Note the light on the sides of the tables and chairs.  This shows the direction of the light.  It come in from a window you don’t see.  Also note the reflections on the top of the table.

I think this painting is great. I love the table and seats, which can be boring, but you made them so fun! I love the view of the individual sitting down too. Great picture, I love it.
