I saw the photo of this interestingly round face in the newspaper. I couldn't resist cutting it out and filed it. I found it today and used it as one of my faces for the month.
He looked like he deserved a real painting - acrylics on canvas. I decided to use a limited palette of some new colors I picked up because they were on sale - Quinacridone Violet and Yellow Ochre. To that I added my faithful Prussian Blue and of course some Zinc White.
Let me just say, it was not easy. They headed towards the greys really fast. But, all in all, I think it worked out okay. After all, it's all about the value.
This is 5" by 7" acrylics on canvas. His name is Frank.
