new commissioned painting in progress } paul newman

Last May or June I was commissioned by my brother to paint a portrait of Paul Newman. His only conditions were that he wanted the painting to be large and that Paul Newman was wearing his Rolex Daytona watch. So in effect, this is a double portrait.

Anyway, Paul wasn’t that big of a challenge. The watch on the other hand…

today, right now. i won't be able to work on the watch just yet. this is the fifth or sixth incarnation of his classic rolex. i still don't know how i want to go about painting it. yesterday i found the perfect brush and soon after misplaced it. i hope to find it once i'm back from beirut, when i'm not looking for it
