Portrait study of Les

As the weather turns colder I find I'm painting my favorite subject more and more, people. Most of these paintings are quick oil studies done lately at my local malls and cafes. No one seems to mind that I'm creating these tiny figure studies or notices. Also, I've returned to the Palette and Chisel where there is always a model to paint as well as several truly amazing artists to observe. This portrait study was done at the P&C. I find after quickly figuring my size and placement through shadow, I zoom in on the nose and eyes.

You have a good eye. Well studied, and rendered.

This is a lovely portrait. The face is wonderful and the eyes are fantastic.
