I used the medium of oil paint to create this painting. The painting is of three people on their vespas on a street in Paris. I found two different pictures online and put them together on photoshop. Then, I cropped the picture and simplified it. I used both a palette knife and brush to apply the paint on the canvas. This painting is somewhat impressionistic. The center of interest in this painting is the people on the vespas in the foreground. There is contrast between darks and lights on the people’s faces and necks because of the shadow cast. The pants of both men show movement because of the curved lines and contrast between dark and light colors.
