My Urban Folk Guy is coming along fairly well.
I lowered his eyes and I'll add the pupils tonight. I add some highlights on the wallpaper background, and thinned his beard a bit. I don't want to add to much detail to this painting. Solid colors, firm patterns and bold contrast are what I'm after. A bit modern, with a American Folk Art feel.
It's just another style to try to learn and grow from.. hopefully another layer to add to that Holy Grail every artist delves deep to attain.
It's a long road yet though.
