I recently painted a talented songwriter friend of mine. I had been somewhat doubtful about how I was going to do this as he rarely sits without playing his guitar. I managed to go about it as I would a landscape, keeping it loose and more impressionist than some of my other portraits. I also enjoyed using more colour, keeping the colours fairly muted still but none the less introducing more than I have done previously. We listened to his music the whole way through- my Instagram has quite an amusing video of one of the sittings. An enjoyable challenge to paint Antonio who sang half of the time he was posing!
