Sketch to Painting to Canvas

Experimenting with techniques for transforming a charcoal sketch from the Tuesday evening sketch group into a painterly image on canvas, using multiple trips between Photoshop and Painter.

A combination of bold, graphic drawing style with bold and varied colors play into an unintentional reflection of sorts of some of my major influences: T.C. Cannon, John Nieto, and Lucian Freud.    

Another cropped version. Final canvas size of the full figure will be approximately 30 x 40 inches.
