Le Capitain Redux

click to enlarge
Over 4 feet wide, this 48" X 36" oil on canvas, Le Capitaine by Warren Keating, is a colorful, above-view, figurative painting from my award-winning series, Overview, that was featured on CNN. It depicts an overhead view of a man with a hat walking on the sidewalk on rue du Cherche-Midi, 6th arrondissement, Paris. This is an unusual portrait of one of those characters found on the left bank of the Siene. The style of this painting reflects a type of mark making that I have invented, a kind of "pixelated impressionism" where the expressive swashes of paint depict the pixels from the original digital video reference image. It is on 1 3/8" thick, museum wrap, stretched canvas with the sides painted white, no need for framing, saving hundreds of dollars. The surface of this piece is textural and somewhat glossy.
