    Definitely a very realistic rendition and I love the blues used.

      Thanks Linda. It was actually painted using only Ivory Black, Titanium White and Asphaltum (brown). But the Ivory black does have a bit of a blue tinge when mixed with white.

    I have very happy memories of when my son went through a Bob Marley stage and was constantly stoned whilst having his music blaring from his room:)))

    Am a great fan of monochrome myself Dan (well in this case duachrome) it can sometimes capture character brilliantly without having to worry about skin tone. Lovely portrait, his music always reminds me of time spent in Thailand.
