The Golden Age by Donna MacDonald

"The Golden Age"

I spent yesterday downtown secretly photographing with my zoom lens. This senior was also people watching while enjoying the sunshine on a park bench.

It seems I spend a lot of my time pushing and pulling the paint around trying to allow the painting to have just the right amount of detail. At times it will be too detailed and I'll go in and through brushwork soften everything up.
