This is the portrait that I have been working on all week and it is now finished, I think, except for a little tweaking along the hairline.
Oil Pastel on colorfix about 14"x 18". I will include the reference photo also.
C&C welcome.

Hi Pat! He's going to love it I think! Wonderful job! :clap: It brought a smile.
Pat, I noticed that you used the skintone different from that on the photo. Can I ask you about it?

Alex, the reference photo I had was a computer printout and had a very reddish cast. I also had a not so recent photo of him so that I would know what his hair looked like and his skin was not nearly as ruddy. Hopefully, it is right. Thanks, Alex.
