Throwback Thursday - "Tom" Portrait Study - Coppini Academy of Fine Arts, San Antonio, Texas

I miss painting at open model sessions. It was always an opportunity to practice working from direct observation, but I would also gain insights into the life of the subject. For #ThrowBackThursday, here's a portrait study from 2018, painted at The Coppini Academy of Fine Arts in San Antonio, Texas.

You might not guess it from his likeness, but Tom and I bonded over punk rock music, chatting during breaks from painting. Everyone is deeper than their likeness.
