Street Vendor

by jimmoyer@q.com
During a visit to Nogales Mexico we were visiting the side streets and this vendor had just set up for the day. While bringing out the camera for a few photos she requested that we pay her $5.00 for her to pose or she would not look at us. That was perfect, the fact that she would not look was a natural. I took a few more photos and then tipped her well. In one of the photos was another vendor arriving shown in the background.
Medium: Acrylic
Size: 24x30
Price: 3500.00 US

Good for you, went to your site, nice work....I have a thing for bridges and painting from under them in the old days. Always nice shade and different views than from above.

Interesting. I'm just getting back into painting after a 30 year break, and started with the standard acrylics. I've developed some "cheater" methods to fake blending...but now I'm going back to oils for portraits to see what I can do with that medium. Fun to play around with this stuff :)

Hi Charlene, For many years (50+) I have used oils and still do. These are among my few acrylic paintings. I have been trying the new Acrylics-Chroma Atelier Interactive: They allow you to reconstitute the paint to soften edges. I am still out to school on these for now till I try some plein air with them.

Hope this answers your question. Jim

This one is also amazing. I'm curious why you use acrylics rather than oils like so many other painters of your caliber.
