the first attempt

I did the painting of the man in the previously posted sketch, and turned him into a white-haired Trotsky version of himself.

Lots of problems here, not the least of which is the jaundiced eyeballs from the gold background showing through.

But for a 2 hour session (that's 20 minute sittings with 5 minutes in between), I felt pretty good about getting a whole head down!

Daniel Smith oils on 140# w/c paper, with gold acrylic ground.
