I'm back to painting.  Thank you for coming back to visit.

This guy was fun to paint - he has a rather biblical look.  The detail below shows how I approached the beard - a combination of wet paint underneath, then scrubbing on strokes with a dry brush, then scratching into the paint with a small palette knife.

A new addition to my ongoing series BUST-ED.
