Favorite Artist

This is an oil on linen paining called "Waiting - 116th Street," by Daniel Green. Green is an artist from North Salem, NY. He paints very realistic portraits and scenes while still retaining a sense of "cartoon." I love that his painting are rich in texture. In the picture above, there are shiny subway tiles, cracked mosaic, textured hair, and a smooth suede-like jacket. His use of light really brings his paintings alive. Green uses a realistic color scheme that makes it feel as if you're looking at a photograph.
