Alex

I kinda love this portrait of Alex.  Ever since I was a teenager, I’ve done this illustration style where I draw an exaggerated dark line around a face.  And while that works in drawing, it may not always work in painting.  But some painters use a dark line in their paintings.  For example, Van Gogh.  Plus, my girlfriend always compliments me when I use a dark line.  And I like it.  So I use it.  I didn’t even realize it until after I was finished the painting that I’ve outlined Alex’s head with a black line, but, as I say, I like it.
