Frank


I did this oil sketch of my Grandpa from a JamesDean-esque photo we have of him in his younger days for my dad this father's day. Frank passed awhile back and it was really hard for our whole family to see him go, so I thought this might bring dad some good memories. I was really happy with technique, likeness, and the piece overall, so I thought it deserved a post. Oh, and it was done in only three hours. Tons of fun to do. I will try this technique in the future with full color, see if its still fun...
