Painting Of Market Shoppers

The colorful Cambridge outdoor farmers' market has survived many urban revitalization projects over the years. My favorite time to shop there is early Saturday morning in late summer or early fall when the local produce is fresh, ripe and delicious. I usually go armed with my camera and come back to my studio with many colorful scenes to paint as well as vegetables to eat. This painting, which includes my friends, Peggy and Renate, whom I ran into there, was used on the cover of a tourism brochure for Cambridge which was distributed world-wide.

Contemporary portraiture, like today's lifestyle, is becoming less formal and rigid now that a subject can easily be captured in a natural unpretentious composition with the aid of photography. I composed this painting from several photos that I snapped. Each photo had elements that I wanted to include in my painting but one photo did not include all elements. I chose the lighting source that dominated the most important area of the piece and changed the lighting in other areas that did not comply to create a natural unified painting.
