"100 Faces, No. 44"

4 x 4"
oil on masonite

A dramatic subject to paint, strong features, intense - I painted him on a turquoise ground color, much like what surrounds the head. One of my favorites.

Amazing portrait!

May I ask how long does it take you to complete one of these?

Alex, it varies, depending on how nit picky I get. Anywhere from 45 minutes to whenever I stop.
