Portrait Painting: Jeandor

I’m really happy with how this portrait turned out. I like the shadow down the middle of the face and the eyes.

Below is the reference photo I found on the Sktchy app. I love using this app for reference photos of interesting subjects. It’s great because it’s an artist to artist platform, all the photos are fair use, and there’s a nice variety of subjects to choose from. It allows me to draw/meet new faces that I might not be able to otherwise. If you love creating portraits you really must check them out!
