I like it, it's different, like the figures with hats and the subdued colors used as well. I don't know why but I'm thinking unemployment from the look on the seated figure

Re: first upload

hey gaykir, what is the photo? I've been looking for it.
people ask me about it, but I really don't remember.
I know it's a famous black and white photo.
what keyword I should use to search for it?

Re: first upload

I like the loose style you have used and the colours work wonderfully together. I do find that area of white on the shoulder of the front chappy a bit distracting though.

Well done.

It's a photo by Dorthea Lange that was published in a favorite book of mine called The Family of Man. I think it is called "White Angel Breadline". I have loved this book forever and my copy is totally dog-eared!

Nice loose painterly look to this piece. Very well done. Has a lot of mood and feeling in it.
