First things first: I LOVE painting weird details in a separate layer, so that sharing their design won’t spoil anything about the image. Insert some manic laughter here.
And - yes, it’s already a tradition: when my friends go to Britain, fearlessly prepared to wait at a stage door to deliver a hug, or share some love, or just stare from the distance at some talented person [whom I can paint], I PAINT.
I've been informed the person from the portrait already knows this exists... and I hope he likes it. Because I never know what will any of my paintings look like when they are finished, and this one turning out to be some kind of a modern-day Puck was truly a pleasant surprise)))
