And the reason for the title? Well, there's no question he has a 'rock star' look about him, right?
He reminds me a little of a Rolling Stone!
But he is also the landlord of our local pub, which is called 'The Star Inn'. So - an apt title all round I think!
He had no idea I even took the photo, let alone painted him - so, I thought it only right that he should have it :0)
Here it is framed...
As you can see, once again there are only subtle changes from the last stage. (Scroll down for stages one and two) I have simply added the wisps of smoke, twirling from his cigarette, I've warmed up some areas and added some cooler shadows in others.
I also adjusted his jawline as it wasn't quite right before.
Anyway - I think it has remained 'edgy' as I had planned, so I'm quite happy to leave it right here before I do too much and spoil it!
He is on holiday until Friday so I can't give it to him until then. Humph!
I really hope he likes it :0)
In other news:
It seems that our son Charlie was feeling creative himself the other day.
He shut himself in the kitchen for quite sometime before walking back in to the lounge, proudly holding a swan which he had carved from an apple!
Of course I had to take a photo of his masterpiece...
Isn't it great?
Oh dear... It seems that the vacuum cleaner was also very impressed!
