The above portrait was completed as a commission for a client, who took a picture of this man years ago in Zambia. He had been travelling on foot, without shoes, for about 500 km, for family business, and was walking back to his own town. He preferred travelling on foot to travelling by bus.
I thoroughly enjoyed painting this portrait and wouldn't mind doing some more portraits, especially of African faces. If you are have a portrait you would like me to paint, don't hesitate to contact me.
The above portrait was done in acrylic on stretched canvas and measures 61 x 76 cm.
Here is a picture of it in the client's home:
