Not Jules, but Interesting ...

Overall, I believe it was a good experiment. My focus was on the samurai scalp-lock, and that certainly is the focus in the painting. When I saw that it was going to look nothing like Jules, I felt free to do all sorts of nasty, un-watercolor-painter-like things to it. I would like to do more of him, but definitely will get some decent reference photos, and, if I'm lucky, he'll even sit still for 1/2 an hour so I can do some drawing. 

This was the reference - over-exposed, and he chose to stand under a trellis which cast strange shadows.

Well, thank you for dropping by! Your comments are always welcome.
