Well there is a warning that artist should not paint a portrait of someone close to them. Oh well, so I decided to break the rules. There is still another layer of Umber to go but I decided to let it dry before working any further.
This time I am working from a photograph. It is of a self portrait that my brother once used as a profile for his flicker account. The photo I am working from has so much of his personality. Luckily I saved a copy before he replaced it. The recent photo is another one of my favorites where he is looking distantly out of a window to a beautiful snow scene.
We are worlds apart distantly but I like being around him because music sounds so much better when he's there.
