This is a portrait of my husband that I finished awhile back. So far it's the only black and white one I've done and I enjoyed the process.

16x20 Acrylic

C&C welcome.

Thanks for looking.

What a unique way to do a portrait. It tells about the person! Excellent painting and composition. :thumbsup:

I especially like the way your painting tells things about the person. The portrait itself is very well done.

I thought for a second you were showing us the picture framed and sitting on a table! .... very good.

I really like the concept and you've done a great job on painting it. The b&w works to great effect in it, too!

Thank you all for the kind comments.

My husband does not enjoy getting his photo taken...let alone having a portrait done. The strange thing is that he really likes the painted portrait as opposed to seeing himself in a photograph.

I may have to paint all of our vacation photos. Hmmm....:)
