I tried this subject twice previously before getting a pose through the under-painting stage that I thought worked well
For this portrait I wanted a more typical corporate boardroom approach [although it must be admitted that I'm not always a great fan of such a pose]
John has strong features and I felt it was coming together well
The limited palette and the warm/cool balance seemed to express my feeling.
I hope that you can feel the vision and the warmth of Johnny
I like the 'presence'
The ultraviolet blue to his right is a bit more subdued in the actual painting. It got an artificial boost out of the processing.
