Painting of a Child – the Hitchhiker

Posted by NikH

Influenced by the short story entitled the “hitchhiker” by Flannery O’Connor. This is a painting of a boy who becomes a runaway, and ends hitchhiking in a car.

The child had packed his bags, dressed himself and got himself a ride in a strangers car. Spooky.

I was experimenting with film noir style of painting just like the entitled “the attic”. The limited pallet of color is an interesting challenge, and gave the painting that air of mystery.
