Navy Cadet

In between doing everything else, thought I would quickly post this.  I did a portrait course with an incredible portrait artist, Elize Bezuidenhout, and learnt so much.

The first is really a sepia rendering of the values - 

This next one I started with the skin colours 

And finally, the end result 
I took the original photo last summer on our week away in Langebaan.  A group of navy personnel were doing manouvres close to where we were painting and this chap was waiting for the rest of his group.
