Year Created: 2003
Medium: Oil
Surface: Linen
Dimension: 16X20

MY COMMENTS:
This is an underdrawing for a portrait of the Database Administrator at my job. He was nice enough to pose for some photo's after work and I based this drawing after the photos. The eye areas are darkened as a guide for when I put down paint. I am trying to put a plan together as I've never done portraits before. My next task is to apply color when I can get time to paint (which is only on weekends).

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
my question is for the portrait artists. Seems like I need alot of detail before I can start painting. Is this typical for portrait painters?

unfortunately the only thing Leonardo and I have in common is we're both Italian!

not sure if that explains the simmilarity of approach.
