An Irish Lad, 6x6" oil
Great way to spend a Friday afternoon in the company of many talented artists at the Venice Portrait Studio, VAC. This handsome man posed for us with patience and dignity and also managed not to fall asleep. Had planned on just letting the top of his hair bleed off, but I suffer from an artist's term called "exploding-head-syndrome." My original sketch kept getting bigger and bigger until he not only lost the top of his hair but half his skull. Sometimes, the brush controls the artist.
