Grandpa Kobabe by Tom Wheeler
This is the first portrait I tackled after taking the workshop with David Kassan. I'm quite pleased with it. The process of creating very real portraits with oils is intense, and very deliberate and careful. There really are no short-cuts, and it takes a long time and a lot of concentration. I still love this kind of painting, but due to time constraints and my busy schedule these days, I'm moving a little away from this style and into a more loose method.
