The Waiter

The Waiter - oil on canvas panel - 6" x 6"
I love the pattern of light and dark here! Notice how all the dark areas are just one big shape? If you squint, the waiter pretty much disappears into the background.

The waiter's shirt was originally the same dark brown color, but I glazed over it with a transparent blue. I like glazing with transparent colors because it gives a richness to the surface that you can't get otherwise. Colors and shapes in the dark areas become visible according to the angle of your vision and the angle of the light.
