This was first painted without the smile, but the volunteer smiled a lot so I made a slight adjustment to make a smile. He was very friendly and outgoing. He volunteers at a lot of organizations. He is representing the food pantry and I can see how he would make you feel comfortable whatever your position. I felt I had to post something and will replace this again when I finish the shirt.

Thanks, some come together easier than others.ReplyDelete
I agree with John, each portrait just keeps getting better and better! I imagine you'll want to be a full time portrait artist when you done with this project. I'm confident your work will be in demand!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Gin. I am enjoying the experience.Delete
Wow, this is a really great likeness of him.ReplyDelete
Thanks, I added a little bit of a smile from the photos. That is probably how everyone sees him. A very nice friendly guy.Delete
