Artist's description:

I've been working on a series of portraits of everyday people. I try to sketch and study people whenever I can, and there's no greater variety of faces, poses and gestures than out in the real world. If I could paint and draw everyone that walked by me I would as I think each face has it's own story to tell.

I wanted to paint this particular man for several reasons. One was that the lighting on his face was really interesting; lots of deep shadows, but not quite harsh directional light. I also thought he just had an interesting look, with his almost samurai-esque topknot ponytail and rough, patchy beard. I got a little creative with my palette knife on the background and allowed those colours to influence the the portrait itself.
