385 Mr Moustache

bid here
(Pardon the glare). This handsome man is a Comissionaire on the Inner Harbour. I painted this from a photograph I took this summer.
I don't usually paint from photographs, but this was irresistible. That is one gorgeous moustache.

I really wanted to simplify the painting so I made the background simple.

I really like this painting.  I think it really captured his likeness and even the personality of this gentleman.

I've been wanting to make a stash of photographs of interesting faces. So lately I've been asking folks if I could photograph them for use in a future painting. I try to get them to make a funny face or interesting expression.
So far people have obliged me. :)
