Moroccan Boy

"Moroccan Boy", 10 x 8 In, Oil on Panel
Since I am now posting every other day, I am giving myself more room for experimentation. As opposed to recent portraits, with this one I used a bigger brush and more paint. My goal was to have limited strokes and not go over too much once a stroke was put down. I succeeded partially with this.

Purchase this unframed painting.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.
