Break Line Hoedigital painting / art prints – Dan Beck 2006

It has been weeks since my last digital painting. I was away on vacation and this was my first chance. I wasn’t planning on painting – I have many other things on my plate.

But I spied this line of workers – hoe in hand – making a b line to the edge of the field – and I assume a break. Although it might well have been they were just moving in unison to another field to hoe.

When I saw them this morning I just thought it looked awesome. I wasn’t sure if I could make it work as a painting and knew I didn’t have time to do anything detailed – so the above slight step up from a sketch is what I came up with to capture the scene.
