I Painted Mark McDermott at Epoch Coffee

This is my only attempt at painting at night.  It is very hard!

This is my only attempt at painting at night. It is very hard!

OK, I cheated a little bit.  I asked if I could paint him.  I painted him at Epoch at night, causing all sorts of value/color and lighting problems.   I have only asked to paint someone once before, and I sucked so badly that I promised that I wouldn’t do it again.  But, this face, with the  chiseling  and porcelain singing through, and that black hair of the Black Irish, I couldn’t resist.

    Hi, Meli.

    Yes, he is a very nice boy. He works and goes to school, studying web design. He was working on his laptop, and talking on his cell phone to relatives (quietly).

    ~thank you~
