Walken a thin line.

I apologize for the lack of posts this summer. I promise to be better about posting new stuff!

This is a small oil painting I just finished for this week's Caricaturama Showdown competition on Facebook. The subject was Christopher Walken. He has always been one of my favorite faces to draw. And whenever I attempt another Walken caricature, I try a different spin to try to find the definitive likeness. I don't think I"m quite there yet. But this was a very fun one to paint because I was pretending I was Velasquez or Rembrandt in the overall look and atmosphere. So I changed the background and clothing from the original photo to create a more timeless portrait.

His face torments and haunts me in my dreams. So he is Walken, the tormentor.
