Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Working from a photograph supplied by his father, I found the pose very charming. I decided I wanted to capture the likeness in an old masters look which is why I chose a dark background and light on the subject. Made an effort to keep my edges soft and elevate the value of the skin tones of his face in the light opposed to putting too heavy a shadow on the darker side.
