Figurative City Painting - Odd Man Out

Copyright © 2010 Linda Apple
"Odd Man Out" - sold
oil on 1.5" deep canvas

No matter how much it is raining......there is always
at least one who is braving the weather without an umbrella.

Mine is usually in the trunk of the car! :)

Why do you have the black outlines around the yellow and black umbrella? Not many things have outlines around them in real life...

Anonymous, I don't usually answer comments from anonymous because I don't know who I am talking to but I thought this was a bit odd. Anyway, in answer to your question: one answer is that "this" is a PAINTING not REAL LIFE. One thing I love about painting is that I can do it "however I want".

Good answer, Linda.

Thanks for allowing anonymous people like myself to comment :)

I've been discovering the real limitations of a raincoat in a downpour!

I love this painting, Linda--the simple shapes and palette with bright splashes of color.
