Unexpected View 10"x4.5" oil on panel

This was a DPW challenge to do the foreshortening on the bodies.  I added in the sea gull to give them something to look at and tell a story.  The sea gulls are like tax collectors on the beach, always looking for some payment for your privilege to be there.  They are willing to steal it if you don't leave it for them.  The challenge for me on this one was to simplify the photo which was very cluttered and had a third person in it, to get the values and colors right so that it was unified, warm but had some pop.  I like the size and shape of the panel.
