John F. Hosford - Artist - "SHOALS!"

John F. Hosford - "SHOALS...!"

The following is a painting dated December of 2006 by John Hosford titled, "Shoals...!" In his description of the painting, he says:

"This painting was completed alla prima, which is my preferred method...

Originally my intent for this picture was to drastically bring out the facial expression leaving everything else subdued...

I brought the subject very close because I didn't want very much background, just enough to place where the sailor is. The point of the painting, for me, was the facial expression."

Enjoy the painting. Md
