I got my acrylics the other day, and since this chap had a birthday recently, I thought I would continue until I had a portrait. This is done on paper, approx. 42 x 56 cm. The background is made up. I feel I must make that clear.
The photo was taken in the evening, the sun was sinking behind Kahlenberg, and the photo is warmer (more red/yellow) than the painting is. Strange how a photo will immediately show all the faults and flaws in a painting, where the naked eye, in front of the original, will be more forgiving.
