“Ben” for Emily: Complete

Here’s the finished painting of Ben:

The navy of the whale is a little bit darker than the navy I used in Emily’s painting. I wanted the whale to stick out, but not be quite so obvious, so that it would look like one cohesive beard from far away. There are navy swirls all over his beard, but it’s hard to make it out in these photos.

When I add sharpness and contrast to the photo of the painting, you can get a better feel of the paint strokes that you see when looking at it in person.

I hope Ben likes the painting. It looks great alongside Emily’s:
