Old man in blue jeans

I wanted to do something different. I created this strange composition from a group of pictures. I don't usually use whites, browns, or greens. I usually just paint with the primary colors: red, yellow, and blue. I wanted to give this painting a mystical yet realistic appearance. Everybody is scared of getting old. "Old" is represented by the cane that you could barely see, the weird hat, and the crooked posture. The rocks tell a story of old times............It's definitely different. It didn't come up as I expected, but it still has feelings in it. I need to learn how to take my time, reather than finish these paintings in a few hours!!!!
