Cousin Al

This is my cousin Al.  The reference photo was taken in Orlando, Florida where he lives.  I used mostly Rembrandt pastels and Carbothello pencils on this portrait.  I thought he had a great face to "called" me. lol

Richard was our Friday model. He modeled for two weeks at my Long Island Portrait group. I loved his hat and poncho...When I paint a portrait I focus on the face but a few of the artists paint the entire body and the poncho was really nice. I used my Rembrandts and unison pastels for this portrait..
