: Newest Portrait! "Dad"

Here's my newest addition, my dad works in the registrars office here at the college, been there for a good 10+ yrs so he has some fans by now lol. I figured if he hung it in his office I might get more business that way! Here it is: "Dad" Oil on 8.5" x 8.5" Dry Brush Technique

The reason I chose this photo for reference is because every year we hike the tallest mountain here in maine, and without fail he always takes a pic of himself, and they all look the same! haha, I had to capture this in a painting.

Your work is incredible. Just awe inspiring. Has he seen it?

Great piece Adam, Really like the way you opened the eyes up. You should post the self portrait WIP over here...after I get over the flu and feel up to asking some questions, I have several. Great works...
