Gary Everest painting Caio Fern


A couple of days ago, I visited Caio’s blog and found several photos of him.  He is not normally so revealing and one of the images caught my eye.  I downloaded it and have been working on his portrait for three days.  Of course, it was only because Rhonda’s portrait was drying.  Anyway, here is Caio after three sessions.  It’s oil on canvas, 30 x 24-inches (75 x 60-cm).

It was really fun and the work progressed rapidly.  Painting males is much easier for me, psychologically speaking, because most of us don’t care too much about looking pretty, let alone, “our best”.  I hope Caio is not too disturbed by my humble attempt.
