    Thank you. This was one of my first portraits as you can see in the picture of me holding it how large I made his head. Now I try to keep it around 8 inches from chin to the top of the forehead.

    JL (Jeffery?Jeff?), this portrait is awesome!!! The skin texture is soft & believable & the lighting (under the hat, for instance) is amazing. Steve

    Thanks. Jeff is fine. I am glad you noticed. It is all about the light, sometimes I capture it sometimes not but I keep trying.

    I would like somehow with charcoal and graphite to bring someone out from the dark like David Leffel’s paintings or Rembrandt van Rijn. I will probably have to learn how to paint but my efforts so far is not good. With oil it seems I do not know anything.
