December 2011 Finalist

December Finalist
Award Sponsor: RayMar Art
Judge: John Burton

Take a break (surfer boy) by Paul Cheng
12 x 9 Oil

Judge's Comments: I wonder if this was done plein air. If it wasn't this artist has spent plenty of time outside understanding light. I really like how they bounced so much warm light into the shadows for the feel of sunlight. Nice design. Interesting suggestive quality to the figure. Look how far they were able to push the blue shadow since there is so much support of controlled grays. – John Burton
