From Wetcanvas - portraiture forum
"Gavin Hat" or "Ticket to ride" oil on paper 16x13"
From wetcanvas site - portraiture forum - May challenge. I like very much the hat so I had to have a go ;) - I decreased the white paper on the hat to give a better 1880 feeling. I added also some hair below the ear. For the background I choose red to remind a well known book (The red and the black)- Sorry Gavin I did not get the likeness ... Perhaps next time?
Another view of the same Gavin
Oil on paper 15x19"
I had fun changing his glasses and the hair on his face.
