i had fun today....

6x6 oil on linen panel
 
so I really had fun with this!!..not sure it's done but almost!..i was inspired by a painting I saw in the Churchill hotel in London...I absolutely fell in love with this painting of a young man..but very oddly colored...lots of green in the shadows..but it worked somehow!...so this is my attempt at that color palatte...it took me the whole afternoon but I had so much fun!..trying to get the skin tones right with hints of surrounding colors..i will revisit this tomorrow and repost..see if you can notice the small differences...
