You all did a marvelous job. I figured out what was different about his hair that made him seem from another era. Eureka! I think because it was longer on top, short on sides and back. No matter. He is one handsome Steven.
It's so interesting to see the different renditions, all of them interesting viewpoints, all of them well done. Jennie O'Connor's painting, though technically not a portrait, is a wonderful multiple figurative abstraction. The young man does look like a newsboy in a movie taking place in the 30's.
Love seeing them all too! Thanks for sharing, Celeste! And Janet's remained male. He he!
Wonderful work. What long paint brushes!
Hallie, I used the long handle brushes almost exclusively for my painting of Steven, which is 20"x26". You can tape short brushes to long sticks if you want to try it.
