I love capturing images of people reading. I have references of readers all over the place - at coffee shops, parks, beaches and so on. It is one of my favourite references and I have painted it a couple of times already. While I trashed the earlier versions, I decided to rework this one from three years ago.

Below a collage of the older painting and the reworked one, where I hope I don't need to tell you which one is what ;-) I am totally enjoying these collages, they give me a very good idea of how far I have come. Looking at the older paintings makes me cringe, but it is heartening to know that the journey is in the right direction.
I have dug into my image library and have unearthed quite a few more references of people reading. I should hopefully get to them one by one.
