Hi everyone! This is one I just finished and this will probably be my last one on canvas paper. 10X13 Credit for the reference photo Steve Evans. Smile

Love your brush work on this - especially his face. The flesh colors are great.

It's going to be a real treat working on something better than the canvas paper. Are you moving on to wood panels or stretched canvas?

Thank you Callie! I'm going back to stretched canvas. I don't have what I need for wood panels yet so that will need to wait. The canvas pads don't have the rite absorbency for working alla prima and it's really difficult to retain brushstrokes. I thought I'd share this one but I know its a mess. Smile

Even with your struggles, you did a great job of capturing his serenity.

I like the looseness and the colours - not a mess at all - nice work. Smile
