Black Man

"Black Man"
12" x 12"
Oil on wrapped canvas
A friend sent me a photo of a black man he photographed, and I wanted to… to… paint him. The painting is a lot nicer than the photo of it.  I want to paint more people. I need models!  

I painted this in a couple of hours, mostly dealing with the hand. The color of the flesh came easily. the jeans were a lot of fun. And the color is dead on when you see it in person. I'd love to give my man a name, but he arrived without one. What name would you give him?
