Waiter Finished by Donna MacDonald


"Waiter"
18 x 24 Original Oil Painting

Here is the final painting. I've included the photo that I used as reference. It was taken at the restaurant with a cell phone. The quality of the photo is quite poor but serves the purpose as a guideline for the painting. You can see how much I cropped, changed and simplified the composition. I have purposely only suggested things like chairs, pictures, dishes and tables.

Nice work Donna. I think your reference picture was good, too much information and then it is easy to get lost in the detail.
