A Quick Portrait

Mikey, 2007, oil on canvas panel, 8 x 6 inches
Reluctantly I started working on this quick portrait sketch of Mikey. Had in mind to paint a head of garlic, but after I sat in front of the TV with Mikey next to me my plan changed. I was not sure what was going to come out. I have only done two portraits in my life and those took a lot of work and patience. Creating a portrait in about two hours was something I didn't think could be done, at least for me. But I pushed forward and took my time with it not worrying too much about making mistakes since in the end this was only practice. For a first timer in quick portraiture I don't think this is bad at all.
