The Bargeman - a WIP

While on holiday in UK I spent some time walking along canal banks and admiring the narrow boats/barges...I asked one bargeman if I might take his photo with a view to painting his portrait...he agreed.
I am using another photo as background and superimposing the agreeable bargeman over it.

Lessons I learned in the Landscape class have proved invaluable here

Re: The Bargeman - a WIP

Looking good so far Laurie2! Thanks for showing us this as a WIP. I like how you've incorporated him in front of the vessel. This will be real nice when it's done. How large is this or did you say?
