This fabulous Painting of a Happy couple, is 30" x 30" with painted Edges ready to hang and is inspired by people around me.
I have done  three Clint Eastwood based on the same image, here is the last one. It is 40" x 40" acrylic on canvas, This one is a little closer to traditional in Style.
For better or for worse I made a few changes, for one I did not like the eyebrows and the nose was too dark, lightening the nose forced me to brighten the orange next to it, the yellow near the chin got a similar treatment I tried to achieve a better balance by removing a lot of the red in the skin and added bright colour to the bottom right to even out the big picture. 
Here's the third Clint, it seems as I can never stop at two, most always end up working until three finishes have been done.
Had to ajust the squint a little, redefined the beard and hat, worked the face contrasts and gave some fire to the cigar.
lightened the beard and skin.
