Ok, the lesson for today is “less is more” I want you to compare today’s painting with the one I did for St Valentine’s day. I took a lot longer trying to get the likeness in the VD painting, making a million pencil lines and erasures, and in the end, it still wasn’t right. The reference for this painting was mostly deep shadows, but I knew if I followed the shadow, the face would appear. And it did. This is a wonderful likeness of Donald. It shows his smile (with about 3 brush strokes) and shows his posture and attitude quite well. I recommend you try it!
