Portrait of Adam

I wanted to get back into painting so I decided to use a photo of my brother as reference. I had taken the photo in Ireland last year. I wanted to challenge myself by painting a landscape, which I haven't done in a long time. It was challenging to get the colours to look natural and it needed a lot of observation and focus. I tried to pay more attention to detail and get a step closer to realism while still keeping the soft, 'airbrushed' look. I particularly like the way the jumper turned out, it appears to be more three-dimensional than the clothing in my previous works. I want to keep improving and trying different painting methods, as well as experimenting with different media that I haven't used in the past.
