Dear ol' Dad

Here is a small painting of my dad watching the tube one night. (6x8 acrylic on a strathmore sketchbook.)

I love painting dramatic lighting. It's probably one of the most interesting compositional devices.

Nice! I really like the lighting with the face in the shadow. Made me think that, I'll need to paint my dad to somedays.

Nick - Thanks so much man. I have no doubt you could do the same in time.

Mikael - HaHaha! Thanks man. Yeah we should start a "Dad Painting blog".
