The Real Deal, cowboy, daily painting

"The Real Deal"
5x7 inches
Acrylic on gessoed board
Not Available

Wanted to practice portraits. I usually struggle with getting a likeness. I built this painting up with thin layers of paint. This is a friend of mine, he is a true cowboy and has been all of his life. I tried to use colors that symbolize and emphasize his occupation. I think I captured him fairly well.
