Splash IV Old Man Portrait

Think I'm calling this one finished even though there are problems with the right ear (viewer's left) and perhaps the angle of edge of the face.  It is painted on a quarter sheet Fabriano Aristico soft press paper.  I believe the reference photo was from Paint My Photo but I'm just not sure on that.  It was wonderful practice and I learned a lot painting this one.  Thanks Stephie.

I didn't notice the things you mentioned... because I was so mesmerized by those eyes. You captured the intensity and all-knowing wisdom there... so perfectly!

Yep Ann the eyes are wonderful, funny of all the ones we did I enjoyed this one the most. Bravo
