Some things are easier. But it is never easy. The Cape Horn man is getting closer, I am actually quite pleased with the expression. The background color was very difficult to capture on camera, it is greener in reality. I used my Elinchrome studio lights, but still could not really get it. The ear-ring is still missing. The format of this painting is 32 x 25 cm.
Another little piece I have been struggling with for a very long time is this. 20 x 20 cm. Am slowly getting there. Will not give up quite yet.
