Roy’s Reflections


This portrait is of recording artist Roy Gentry. He is in a “reflective” mood, yet his “reflection” is in the tabletop. Note the natural light coming in on the right from a window. I’ve painted his arm and face  almost white to portray it. The left side of the picture shows shadow. Note the fist, the face, and his jacket.

He is such a great subject. I love how you included his reflection, and I appreciated your explanation of how you portrayed the light, etc.

Roy Gentry is a “natural” for a portrait and you certainly have created his reflective mood. Such a great job!

It’s fascinating how you portrayed two kinds of reflection. Roy Gentry certainly is a wonderful painting subject!
