100 OIL PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Ed, 68/100, Carol Nelson Fine Art
This portrait takes the cake. It was, hands down, the most difficult one I've done so far. Those sunglasses are positively diabolical. I'm still not sure if I pulled them off. Each lens is a little abstract painting. I spent twice a long on this painting as I do on most of them.
The lighting is great. I love the way the sun shines on the edge of his face and beard turning them white. Artist, Gwen Bell sent me this photo. If she ever asks for photos for a project like mine, I'm going to search for a real doozy! LOL
