This is our favorite Irishman, our very dear friend Pat, caught with an impish expression. I painted this quickly with thick paint as part of the Daily Paintworks color challenge. I was trying to concentrate on values and use expressive colors, but without realizing it, I managed to convert the colors back toward realistic flesh tones. It was fun and pretty liberating although the painting wasn't as expressive as I was shooting for.
