When I painted Nathan's younger brother Russell I was casual and almost careless going into it. It was my experiment in (human) portraiture... I didn't think I'd be able to pull it off and that somehow made for a very pleasant experience and I was really happy with the painting... This time around with Nathan's portrait, I struggled and it probably shows. After two wipes, the hair seemed ok--but when the time came to paint more subtle color/value adjustments (etc) ...let's just say I was fatigued. We'll do another sometime soon. Next time around, I want to be make sure his beautiful blue eyes can be seen.
