After a couple of weeks of posting real physical artworks (at least partly) we find ourselves back in digital mode today with a digital painting inspired by the crowd waiting to hit up the TKIS booth in Times Square to see what Broadway shows they can get into cheap. The booth is right by Father Duffy’s steps, and as you can see, even on a drizzly day, there’s a whole bunch of people there.

This painting was inspired by a photo I took and posted to Facebook, but when painting the final image I made a lot of minor compositional changes, turning the heads of some figures, moving some around, changing the color balance and better defining the background buildings, along with a few other subtle touches.

You can do things like that when you’re painting on a new layer over the original photo. You can see that original photo at right.

While this was digital work and not physical work, it took longer than my recent forays into “real” art to bring it to its finished stage. I hope you enjoy it. As always, click the images to see a bigger version.
