Harry

I had fun painting this portrait of Harry.  I had limited time -- less than two hours -- but sometimes I work better when I paint with urgency.  He was actually wearing an 18th-century formal outfit, but I just chose to suggest the rather large collar of his shirt. For the most part, he looks like a 21st-century man.

I was closing in on a likeness when time was called.  With a little more time, I'd have added more detail to his eyes and eyebrows, which are quite distinctive, but even so I was happy to imply those things and declare victory.
