Pretty Man by MadameGiry Pretty Man by MadameGiry
Portrait of a friend. I tried to stay away from my usual reds and blacks this time and worked primarily with white, red, blue, and yellow ochre, with a little black for the leather jacket.

Was going to put an elaborate patterened backdrop in the circle but in the end decided that less was more for this particular piece.

I'm really pleased with how this one turned out. :D

Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 20" x 24"
Model: K. Prettyman

I know I told you over aim, but this is lovely. I especially like the work you did on this cheeks.

I am quite taken with the shading/contouring of the cheek and ear. Very nice!

Quite! Mine always look like ink squiggles.

I used to strategically draw hair so that it would cover up the place where ears would be. ;)

Thank you! Umm..... I would guesstimate in the 10-15 hour range, scattered over a number of days. Lol.
