This painting is based on a photo of an elderly uncle taken years ago. I wanted to play with drama and contrast in this one. I upped the contrast in the photo using Photoshop, then further increased the effect in the painting. Another concept that deserves another visit.
I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
