Preliminary study for a commissioned painting. It's better than earlier attempts -- which are too lousy to show here -- but it still has a way to go.
It's not looking enough like the intended subject yet, and in fact reminds me of someone else completely.
With a little more refinement and perseverance, I hope I can get it adjusted to where I'm happy with it.
I posted another example of this iterative process in June, while working on a portrait of James Coburn.
