For a Loaf of Bread by L. Martel

This is a 12″ x 16″ oil on canvas. I did a drawing of this a couple of weeks ago and have since done this oil painting. The idea was taken from a photo by Emilio Morenatti of the Associated Press and depicts some Pakistani men reaching out for bread being handed out near a mosque in Lahore, Pakistan. In the original photo the faces are blurred and one is struck by the number of hands reaching for sustenance. I added a few faces and have shaded them out. It isn’t quite finished but near enough. I will spend some time focussing on it to bring it to completion.
