This is Johnny, a fellow portrait artist who is from brentwood , TN, USA.

He and I have done a portrait swap!
Johnny had finished mine earlier in the year, so it was about time I started his portrait.
Portrait swaps are great fun, and you end up with a portrait of yourself :)

This is an oil 12x16" painted on a canvas covered board. I tried a new palette for the skin tones and am really happy with how this is turning out!

My palette for the skin tones ;
Cad Red, Burnt Sienna, Prussian Blue , Raw Umber, Titanium White, Italian Pink and small amounts of Alizarin Crimson and Terre Verte.
