Lewis Hamilton - WIP

Have been asked to produce a Formula 1 painting and took the opportunity to paint my first portrait.

Had a few goes before I got to here. I found it easier to carve out the main shapes with a tissue into wet paint and then find the form from there. Capturing a likeness is a challenge, even more so with a famous face. I could have just squared up a photo but I would not learn much doing that.

I'll be doing more portraits as tie goes on.
