this is a study of a early lucien freud - I've always been fascinated by his early pieces.
It was interesting to stare at the original for the few hours it took to paint - I never noticed that one eye is blue and one is brown. Couldn't capture the amazing subtlety of the original, but I enjoyed the process of studying it. I'm even more impressed now. The original is oil on copper.
