The lines and shadows on peoples’ faces convey so much about their character to me, and something about their lives. I am always drawn to paint such portraits. I used a rainbow of pigments in this man’s face, while maintaining more neutral tones in his garb and in the background. I utilized some softer edges around his hair and shoulders, and I tried to capture a more weathered presence. This painting exhibited at the Adirondack National Exhibition of Watercolors, 2013.
