This is Lieutenant Colonel Doug Foreman's second sitting with the Goward House Portrait Painters.
He first sat for us last year and his pencil portrait appears in my older posts. See January 22, 2013.
Caricature calls for exaggeration but the colonel graciously accepted the distortion with good humour...
he said the troops would appreciate the portrayal 'cos they say he can be a hard r's. I dunno, he seems like a pretty likeable guy to me.

I believe that working in one medium visits kindly upon the other media that I find myself embracing.
My portrait of Linda was done very lightly in pencil first, then I gradually applied cross-hatching in pen before flooding the larger planes in bold black. Voila. Hit the image to see a bigger view. Comments encouraged. Thanks, Ron.
