Here is the second painting in the series of the large-scale paintings for exhibition. This image was the inspiration for the series. The work is comprised of large-format digital prints, mounted on canvas with oil paint. The original image for "Girl with Straw Hat" is from a small printed advertisement page I found in the street, while walking to the studio one morning. I brought it to the studio and painted over each ad photo with gouache, blocking out part of the photograph.
