Re: John Lennon portrait

That's very good. But why so small?

Re: John Lennon portrait

Yes, that's him! The very sharply defined hair is a bit distracting. Maybe could be smeared into the background in places?...

I only have a very small room as my studio, and my house is crowded with larger paintings so thought i'd do some smaller works

Thanks you, yes I was looking for contrast, a bad habit I picked up painting acrylics, back to oils now though

Re: John Lennon portrait

Delightful brushwork, I believe I have to agree with people here, his hair is too heavy in contrast and is a tad distracting. Other than that, I love it.

Although, you got my curiosity. I have tried to look for the reference because I loved the 3/4 profile of him, but couldn't find anything.

Could you please guide me in the right direction where you found this reference? It's understandable if you don't want to reveal your source. Either way, I figured it won't hurt to ask you.
