5 x 7 Oil on Gessobord
I've done this gentleman three times now. Twice in pastel and now in oil. There is something about his face with all the lines, marking his years and experiences, that fascinates me. Oil is so different from pastel, and I wasn't sure I could make it work. I focused on just a few things, and all of a sudden it worked for me. I'm so hooked on oils now. I actually dream about them and what I'm going to paint next. If I ever see this wonderful man again, I'm going to tell him what joy he has brought me!
