Portrait of a Man Wearing a Kimono

I started this picture being attracted to the geometry of the traditional kimono wear. The figure is approximately life-size and I painted it during several sessions with the model. This was an interesting experience that showed me how I can improve in some areas. I hope to make it into a series of portraits.


LOVE this!!! Would especially like to see it in person, but guessing it's a little large for a Canvas Meetup? Haha!

Thanks, much appreciated! It is a bit large - but I'm sure we can figure something out. Either way, I hope there is many portraits to come:)

Yes, he's wearing a hakama.
