#8: Lope

6 x 6 oil on panel

This is my submission to the 30 in 30 challenge. Again, I'm keeping with "Legs" as a theme. I don't think I can fill the rest of the month with Leg paintings because I don't have that many sources. But I hope to get another couple done before I get bored. 

This guy seems to be loping toward the finish line. I really had fun with the fabric folds in his shorts, and trying to keep just the right amount of intensity in the colors. I like how it ended up.


  1. good colors, very bold and bright. Definitely makes it a more interesting painting

  2. These themed paintings are great! You really captured the athletic look of this runner's legs. Can't wait to see more :)

  3. Great muscle definition, too, Cathy. The energy is there in every stroke!

  4. Thanks everyone! I am enjoying the subject still!
