Here’s my new motto: Illegitimi non carborundum
I’m working on my last hat portrait. It’s about half way done so this is a progress “report” if you will.
That is my last hat portrait that has a person in it. It’s not the last for all time. It’s just until I can find another good image to paint. Until such time I am going to paint the hats without people in them.
This hat portrait is of a Dutch friend who lives in Sweden. I’m calling it “The Woodsman” and he is that. It’s a rather difficult subject because of all the little details in the clothing/hat and lesser so in the background. I’ve had to decide what to keep and what not to keep. The face I got right away.
