After many months of painting water and fish, I wanted something different. I wanted portraits again.
There is endless interest in the human head and face, with so many people to choose from. I thought I'd get some practice in with some people I know before I hunt down new victims :).
This is one of my husband's friends who helps out in the woods. Brian, often referred to as 'Stringy' was a neighbour when I lived in Pouch Cove and his children went to school with mine. Odd how people get nicknames, more so males, isn't it?
This is in oils on a 12" x 12" canvas panel completed in about 4 hours.
