Work in Progress

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.


  1. Looks like Lee Marvin. Who's it supposed to be?

  2. Yes, sir, HemlockMan, it is supposed to be Lee Marvin. It still needs some tweaking.
