Now a days Harris is been shifted to Karachi and we really miss him and I am addicted to paint his portraits...lol. But he is a delight to paint.

Here it goes, in his office. The ref photo is camera mounted flash photo but there was not anyother choice.:lol:

According to my style, I will paint the eyebrowes and smaller hair on forehead after completing the portrait.:D

Maria, you are such a master of color! You've done an excellent job on your brother's portrait....but I'm beginning to think you could find wonderful colors in a three week old corpse, too. :D

Maria, this is turning out beautifully. A suggestion, change it's background. Its not working with this composition.

Good looking young man and a perfect subject to paint!
I realize this is a WIP but the right eye (viewers left) seems to have too much of a droop to it making it look smaller than the other one. It could be the highlight on the upper lid is coming down too far. ;o) I know this will be fantastic when finished. :thumbsup: :wave:

Looks like you softened his look from the ref photo slightly. I think that was a good choice. Makes for a very pleasant portrait. Good stuff!
