I can't remember how I came to do this project, if it was a study, or if my excellent friend Matthew Walker asked me to do a portrait.  I've had the reference for months.  The other day I sat down for a couple of hours and had a lot of fun working it out.  I changed the lighting in the painting, mainly because I could make it more interesting.  The original photo wasn't dramatic at all, and didn't have a very good range of values.  at any rate, I had a lot of fun creating this loose painting, and I feel like I learned a lot in the process!

The entire painting is done with red, because it is his favorite color!

This is the finished painting

He loves pixels so I simply used the mosaic filter and played with it until i got something that looked good.
