gentlemen farmers (couple a day #13)
Today's couple is "Gentlemen Farmers", lucky number 13. The posture of these two characters is what drew me to this composition...they're both sporting a very natty, casual attitude. My favorite thing, though, was the guy on the left's tie tucked into his overalls.
Genna's underpainting on this one is a subtle gem. Well, the color isn't so subtle, but when you get a good close look at it has an overall striping underneath the soft oil wash layer that unifies the whole surface. Click on it for a larger view and check out the right guy's hat brim and shirt and the bushy areas to the right and left of their boots.
