Another painting I cannot say enough good things about. Painted like the pro you are Dave! Your friend will love it for sure.
Just a fabulous job here Dave, so glad you didn't overwork things!
Oh gosh thanks alot Ralf i appreciate that
Thank you Brian, i try to combing very controlled brushwork with raw brushwork,finding the balance between the two is sometimes a big challenge
You know Dave, I think you achieved that here.....the most exciting part of this painting for me is his right arm, the colors, softness, contortion make it sooooooo real!
thanks Brian ,when i do portraits and commissions i take the photos myself, in this comp the bread lines run your eyes up to what he is doing so the first center of interest is his hands ,the second his face,so glad you like this one
