I painted this from a photo in a Robert Bean portrait workshop from a couple of weeks ago. Robert teaches at A&M University in Alabama and he is a very talented artist. I didn't intend for this to have such an old world look. In fact I was going in a total different direction but my hand took over from my brain and this is the result. I had a wonderful time at my Ken Auster workshop and I learned so much. I hope to put that knowledge to work but it is harder than it looks when you see a great artist like Ken do it with such ease and control.
