Spiro, 20"x16", Oil on board

I enjoyed painting Spiro on a heavily textured board that I prepared with oil primer. I thought that the underlying texture would work well with his character and appearance. I also added some very thick brush strokes on the areas of his beard as well as the background and the shirt.

The painting turned out to be a bit serious looking, unlike his actual demeanor.
