Thanks for the great photo choices, Christine! :clap:

I went for the interesting chap who was weaving palm fronds into bowls! So much character in that face. This one reached what seemed a totally hopeless stage less than halfway into it. I swear the head looked like a lumpy mud ball, Lol! But I kept on painting spots of color...by the time I got to the lighter notes it made more sense. The color is from imagination.

This is oil on a 7x5 canvas panel.

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking and commenting! :)

Done at 2 hrs.

You got him perfectly, that wonderful hair and slightly belligerent attitude. I love the hot orange/yellow background, the whole thing is so beautifully done. Love it.

VERY impressive! So much character and interesting lighting captured. Kudos to the idea for the challenge to crop the ref photo - this is exactly what I hoped I would see (as I lurk...)
Well done!
