A few weeks ago, the Old Town Artists were lucky enough to have a portrait model named Michael come and sit for us.
The result was a colorful, but not terribly overwrought full-length portrait of a man who bears an uncanny resemblance to Earnest Hemmingway.
The profusion of color is fun. If I had it to do over again, I would have left out the indigo splotch around his right pectoral and also made the legs less symmetrical. Otherwise, this one is quite pleasing.
The other artists in attendance that night agreed that the understated pattern in the background was also the perfect touch. What is your favorite part?
