Did this portrait sketch in oil recently of a tough guy version of @Kristian Nee. Messing around with edges, textures, and abstractions. Inspired by Nicolai Fechin :)

I really like how there is this beautiful vulnerability in the emotion of the face and how that balances with the rougher sketchier brushstrokes surrounding it!

I love your paintings. I hope you do more of these and also finished narrative type like the chopping wood one.

Wow! I thought you did nothing but videos and spread super practical information all across the web. Great to see you still have the skills! Does the canvas texture bother you at all?

I painted on the same canvas a few weeks ago and it bothered me because I was trying to get a surface effect that is not feasible. This time I was trying to get textures like Fechin, so the canvas did not bother me. It helped me.

Got his likeness and there's an energy about it. The brushstrokes are dynamic and entertaining. (Something I've heard a number of times recently while listening to Jeff Watts and Paul Ingbretson, about how we're in the entertainment business, and the brush strokes, shapes and marks we make need to entertain the viewer.)

Hey Stan... Considering the details, is the thickness of those paint strokes also contribute to the planning of the texture? because the shadow casting from those looks to be so...

Yes absolutely. Thicker paint application also provides a texture.

The fact that I can feel the underlying construction makes it rewarding

Great likeness without detail! Although it does look like he’s just ripped a bandaid off his forehead...

Lol. He got in a fight, wore a bandaid for a week and got a tan around the bandaid. 😂

Not super detailed, but still looks like Krisitian. Good job Proko!
