When I snapped the photo for this painting, I was more interested in the person sitting next to this man. But back in my studio, examining my photo, it became apparent that this man had a compelling story to tell in his gesture, and was much more inspiring to me.

    Wow, this painting had difficult foreshortening going on and you also successfully captured an unusual composition – nice one!

    So well done, the way you capture these moments Terry. I always love your beautiful skin tones. This piece looks especially difficult, just perfect.

    Another beauty Terry and yes your foreshortening is wonderful, as is the painting of the hand especially.
