Joe at BBAC (photoshop 836 x 1078)
This is the finished painting of Joe. After the fist 2 sessions of painting directly from life, I worked an additional 5 hours using close-up photos as that I had taken as reference for details. Whenever possible I prefer to paint only from life, but photos are convenient when a pose runs out of time. (no part of the photograph was copied and pasted in photoshop, I strictly just painted while looking at them).
