New portrait, John

Oil on canvas board
12 x 15 inches
I've signed up for Leith School of Art- Figure painting and drawing so I thought I'd better get some practice in before I start in September.

Did this portrait over two nights about 3 and a half hours in total

Hey thanks Rob- I'm fairly pleased with how this turned out. Problem I'm finding at the moment is willing models!!

Like Rob said, you have captured a strong character. Did you paint from photo or life?

I find it not so difficult to find models, because you can rely on
peoples vanity. ;-) Just ask people you find interesting and paint from life.
