New Alla Prima Portrait "Matt Galles"

I had an urge to paint with my oils tonight (I blame the espresso) - and completed an alla prima portrait of my friend, Matt!

Here's the process pics I took throughout the session. Took about 2.5 hours from sketch to finish.

Had too much fun completing this tonight, but boy will I be sorry at work tomorrow morning!
