Idrissa ~






















I started work on a painting of Idrissa today. I've been thinking about this one ever since he was here in dandyland. I haven't applied oil paint this thickly since my teens!

This is a detail taken from the whole painting ~ it's turning out well, but there's still a lot of work to be done on it. I like that it's a painting of a painting ~ I'd thought Idrissa looked fairly ferocious in the original image - but somehow the look became deeper and more complex. Now if I can only get 2 more oils done before the end of the month! (I'd love to paint a dozen with this method.)
