Visual Dialogue: Fishmongers at J-Mart, Flushing, Queens, NY

This is a study of "fat on lean", or the control of oil to pigment ratio, which I did at home. Inspired by Quang Ho's visual dialogue of restaurant chefs. I got this idea when I was shopping at J Mart, New York. It has been a goal of mine for quite some time to do oil sketches with animals and humans in reality as my subjects and I need to give myself a head start and this study is part of it. In fact, the cows I painted at Eden Winery was also a practice for the goal. I want to paint as fast I can.
