12 old men…

I have started a very ambitious project. I am going to paint twelve gentlemen based on an old photo I found in our house. I have no idea who they are, but they are all dressed up for a very special occasion (maybe one of the gentlemen has received an honorary medal?) and it is an interesting picture. The beginning is always very tedious and tiring, as I have to be very concentrated while drawing up the outlines and main details. As soon as I start painting it is a lot more fun…

This is a section of the work. The entire piece is 80 x 120 cm
