Another painting based on a photo from the Library of Congress Flickr photostream. I used a different background than what is shown in the photo. In hindsight, I really don't like it--I should have masked out the posts and did a flat wash for the background. Thought I would just tackle it with some brushstrokes; another reason to always have a good plan before you start! :)

The eyes and the shadow from his cap are just astounding. A very successful one.
