Blue Eyes by Julie Nash

'Blue Eyes' by Julie Nash - Acrylic -
This man was one of my community students. He has such a striking appearance and is well know for his hat, that I asked if I could take a few photographs of him. He looks quite wary in this painting, which I think is an effect of the strong sunlight, but his lack of self-consciousness shows in the direct way he confronts the viewer’s gaze. This is one of my first human portraits and is painted onto 300gms rough watercolour paper.
