Study of Jacob


I woke up at four this morning and started working on homework. At about 11, I decided I deserved a break and some time to paint. Intended to start another self portrait. But. frankly, I've had enough looking at myself for a while. Found this in a heap of photos and reluctantly jumped in. It's my friend's son Jacob and it is his should he choose to accept it. I've had a bit of a block working from photos lately. I just haven't felt as present or inspired painting from references for some time. This was fun though! It might be awful, my eyes are tired. But, I'll take it! All the better if it gets me over the hump...
