Wink Hey djstar here's 1 for you

I have been looking for this ever since you posted that Edward Curtis website. This is one of his pictures, which I'm sorry I can't remember, which is sad because I have painted it twice. Anyway, this version hangs in my friend's house, and she was kind enough to photograph it for me. The painting is 6yrs old, and the last time I did a real watercolor, where it took some effort to get close to what I wanted... below is a detail.

I am sorry, I don't hang out in watercolor at all these days so thanks for alerting me to your posting...subtle!!!
It is a neat reference photo. Not just a native american portrait, but it could be any culture it shows the life of the man against the elements.
Your colors are dramatic and I like the open spaces in the shadow shapes, especially near his nose. I am baffled by watercolor altogether and you used it with power and confidence.
Thanks for taking the time to hunt him down!
