Young Man

Diane Mannion, Young Man, 12x10" oil/linen

Painted from life at the Punta Gorda Visual Arts Center Portrait Studio this morning.  Great artists and great friends there... thoroughly enjoy their artistic company!  Liked the runny red iron oxide underpainting and exposed canvas, so left it like that.  Pretty happy with this one, but wish more of his ear was showing.  Ears are landmarks for me and I find it difficult to do plotting and triangulation without them, plus they're an awful lot of fun to paint.
