It's "finals" week and this is my last painting -- excluding the one I'll probably start in class after the critique is over. At least that's the plan. We were given the option to paint a still life or to choose our own subject. I just loved this guy's face -- so much character. So I decided that since I hadn't done any portraits this semester, it might be fun to try one and make sure I hadn't forgotten how. I really don't know for certain that he's a prospector -- but he looked like he just might be.
