Finally finished a painting... a commission piece which was a real challenge in that the reference photo was an old black and white with limited background information. All in all I enjoyed the whole process in spite of the numerous changes and redos. I know struggling can sometimes be a blessing in disguise, in that you are forced to think, and experiment more than what lies in the old comfort zone. When I originally saw the photo of this well dressed young man striding confidently down the avenue, I was inspired. His look just made me think style and GQ.
