Some of my faithful followers here have asked for a portrait painting demo. I finally got around to making one. I hope you like it.

Do you paint from models or from pictures?

I paint from anything observable outside my head and everything not observable inside my head. Pictures are often a starting point, but they're always supplemented with life reference, stored knowledge, and imagination. Slavish copying is quite boring.

I like your Pink Hell Monkey; you should maybe look up vampire monkey (legends)!

Anyway,

Take Care and Have Fun 'John'!
