My Friend Venturi

I promised a long time ago to do a portrait of him, the first one doesnt look like him, but I like the painting itself. the character behind. The second one is minimalist but efficient, the neck gesture and the mustach is all i needed. The hand add a groove. Bob Marley was singing all along.

One regret i have, I should have done the hair wet in wet, to soften the light on the top of the head. the cut feel very abrupt. I fought the urge to go back in, thank god. It would have been a terrible mess.
