Hi Susan :-)  This is really good!  The colors are lively and the likeness  very real...  Oil paint is a medium I want to explore again; right now it's acrylic or pastel for me.  Thanks for posting this; the trip was surely lots of fun :-)   Rita Marie

This guy looks cool and relaxed,  very nice Susan on such a small scale

Good for you Susan - and on a relatively small scale too!

Beautiful job, Susan.  I agree with Corri - people are hard to do and have them look natural.  You did a wonderful job with this!

Comment by Corri Schmidt on February 20, 2017 at 7:38pm

Ah, yes. I can relate!

Comment by Susan G. on February 20, 2017 at 7:19pm

Corrine thank you. Some days are better than others. Today I wiped clean a painting I had worked on for three days!

Well done Susan!  I think humans, especially the ones we know so well ;-), are incredibly difficult to paint in a way that doesn't make them come out looking awkward!  You have done an AMAZING job on this!  The light and shadows as well as values are right on and this truly is a work of art!  Wow - I am in awe!
