The Old Man, a two painting series
One class I took studying at Boston University's pre-college fine art program was oil painting. We had this male model sit for us, and I produced two paintings of him. This one is zoomed out to show the setting he sits in, and the other which I call "The Old Man from Up-Close" shows the detail of only his face. However the painting styles of both are different.
With this piece, I wanted to loosely show the environment the model sits in. In comparison to the "Up-Close", very detailed version of this model, I wanted to not show a more vague and cartoonish style. You cannot see the detail in his face but one could tell the similarity of the model in both pieces.
