Awesome portrait painting.
Jeremy – you asked for candid opinions.Clearly you are a talented portrait painter…But, I feel your work falls between trying to capture a likeness and trying to inject something of yourself [or the subject].Garcia and Tosh [and Young to some extent], have something extra. Marley, Cash, Clapton and Nelson and just pictures of faces.A Marley with the locks and the conviction you inject into the Garcia and the attitude in this Tosh would be great.
Thanks Mufa. I appreciate the feedback. Interestingly, the garcia and clapton were done prior to my starting to work with Tom Vincent, a master painter whom I began to work with pre-Nelson, Tosh, and Cash. For those paintings, I was trying to capture strict realism. I struggle with this constantly – the need to be original and creative and the desire to paint realistically. Probably something I will struggle with for years to come….Thanks again for your candidness.
GREAT PORTRAIT!…….MET HIS SON ANDREW YRS BACK…LOOKS JUST LIKE HIS DAD!…RARELY SEE A PORTRAIT OF PETER…..VERY WELL DONE
