Portrait of Shad – Update

I spent most of Father’s Day in the studio working on the portrait of Shad.

I’m pretty happy with how it’s going in general. The portrait itself is really nice and I’m happy with the loser bushwork and lost-and-found edges that I was able to get with it. The background color makes me smile. It’s not the most dynamic background I’ve ever done but I do like yellow ochre. The clothing is killing it for me though. I think I need to go back to the drawing board with this one. It’s just so flat, bland, chalky and yet chromatic.

Anyhow… getting close… work in progress…
