This is a 2 1/2 hour painting of Peter, a model originally from the Netherlands. I really enjoy painting these studies because I can get pretty bold with my brushwork and try new styles that I wouldn't use in my regular portrait work. For instance, the light area next to his nose was put in with one stroke of a heavily laden brush. I think it holds the whole painting together!
