GREGORY GREFENSTETTE

Painter Portraitist Artist

Did the shorts, worked for a long while on the face, trying to get the eyes better, bushier eyebrows, better highlights (added cadmium yellow to raw sienna and a touch of red ocre), added some weeds along the back of the stone bench, shoes, a red ocre wash to define the leg muscles better, and bent the wall behind the window to follow the bent far door (parallax in the original photo). And then strengthened the rod which actually ties the picture together, and gives it meaning.
