I dug thru my some recent digital photos, and found a batch I’d taken of Robert in September. I had attempted a painting from this group of pics, but was disappointed with the result (so you’ll never see it).
But I was short of source materials for both a new portrait and still life, so I looked back at these pics of Robert. It struck me I might be able to do something with this pose, so I went for it. I think I’ll follow it up with a painting; I can try to build on what I learned when doing the portrait of Grahame. Actually, I took both sets of photos on the same day.
