I've finished the portrait. I took about a week and a few false finishes but it's done!
It was done for the now annual portrait swap challenge on the DMP forum. A group of realist painters and want to be painters. Beginning painters to very accomplished painters from around the globe. This is Denis who is from Australia. He will be painting a portrait of me. When they are dried and safe to ship we will swap the painting by mail. It's a novel but not uncommon thing. Last year I did a portrait of Bill. A woodcarver from Las Vegas.
It's a funny thing to do a painting of someone you don't know and to get a painting back from them. All of a sudden you know them,
