portraits & snippets: Don getting the perspective

I was surprised to meet my friend Don again in Winchester, this time near the city museum. He was starting another painting but currently has 3 to finish each needing one more (rainy) day.

There is quite a bit of bokeh background so this is for today's challenge in owo-1: lots of bokeh
I like his use of colour Lovely portrait of him at work.

Fab portrait, Hazel (of course) but what's the bokeh? Definitely shallow DOF though and a fav, but I don't get bokeh, as I demonstrated in my offering today

Well admit I was a bit unsure of this but it looks just like an example on a website I found explaining bokeh!!!

Does the most of the painting outside & then finishes off inside when it rains, sounds a good system! Does he sell any do you know Hazel?

Thank you so much. Perhaps love of something helps one to get better at it!!

Pat, my understanding is that Don has to finish those 3 paintings outside when it is a actually raining! I forgot to ask him how he will keep the paintings dry - an outsize umbrella perhaps. Hope I see him again soon and then I will ask!

p.s. He sells them all and just gets comissions from people who see him out and about. The last one he sold was £500 but took 12 days to paint - a rate of around £5 per hour he told me. Painted as much for love as for money!

@quietpurplehaze I wonder why, perhaps rain is hard to paint so he needs to be there. I must say I have never seen anyone painting in the rain!

Yes I think the paintings are of street scenes in the rain. How happy I would be if I could paint like Don!

Great capture of Don in action. I really like portraits when people are not looking into the camera.
