View Full Version : "Eddie"

This is a portrait of a man I know who is now 95 years old and still working as the starter at a golf course here in Los Angeles. He has been there for 80 years!

I wanted to paint this so perhaps they would hang in the starter shack to immortalize him. It was painted from a photo taken about 30 years ago.

approx...14 x 16 on Canson Mi-Tienes, smooth side. C&C welcomehttp://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/17-Sep-2013/1174506-eddie.jpg

I agree w/ Don-nicely done!
I do think perhaps you may want to tone down the bg some so it recedes. The tone of the bg seems too close to Eddies hair. Just my opinion.

Thx Judi,

When you say "tone down" what exactly do you mean?
