Farley, Rest In Peace

The Canadian poet and author, Farley Mowat, passed recently. In homage, a portrait from his earlier days. I used oils, and painted on Baltic Birch panel. A lot of the wood tones show through, painted with tinted white and altered black. Terrible photography, apologies!IMG_3894
