#326 - Hal

5" x 7"   oil on hardboard   Sold

This was a portrait of a friend's father that I really enjoyed painting. It's a real joy playing with the temperature changes in the human face. I think I'd like to do some more of these.

I like your free style and understated use of blending ! I'm trying to do more of that, too. Nicely done, Jeff.....good eye for value changes !
