The 49

The 49 full board

Forty nine beautiful, handsome faces all together.

These are all 7″x7″ oil on board. Around a third of them were painted within the target of 49 minutes but as things progressed I felt compelled to spend more time to take them to a satisfactory finish. On average, the time on each was more like one hour and a half.

The idea was to show something fresh for our open weekend on the 6th of October. I missed that by 5 portraits, but took my time since, to fill these last five spaces. It’s now complete and I’ll keep it together for the year in the studio until the next open weekend.
