Oh yeah, I am doing another portrait of my brother Harris. I did his portrait a month back but I never get tire painting his portraits. He is my favorit subject in portraiture.:lol: Now a days he is in Karachi, far away from us so we miss him a lot. With my favorit tool, Impasto. Here is the current progress.

Tada, its done.

Stroke work is mature enough.:thumbsup: Wish I could do that in digital. Now the background is emerging the face. Love:heart:

The two strokes of reds, one on the forehead and one under the jaw are quite bold. I want to know from the forum if they match the compositon? Tell her.:D

Great job.:thumbsup:

Shan, I hadn't really focused in on them until you mentioned it. Maria, perhaps they are a bit too bold. It's a personal call though. Still, I love, love, love the painting.:)

Thanks Kristen. And I always use mouves in dark tones.:D And I can See the mouve in darks in the ref image.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/08-Apr-2006/59753-konfused.gif

Joel, lol. So nice of you. So do I need to tone down the red? As I said to Kristie, I can See the colors in the ref. I think there is something wrong with my eyes. Or may be my personal taste.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/08-Apr-2006/59753-konfused.gif

BTW Joel, I am glad that I know you.:)

Mom, hmm. I will revisit those areas. Thanks.

Annie, so sweet of you. What can I say? Brothers are brothers...:D Cant compare with anyone. lol.:)

Thanks all for the feedback.
