Alla Prima Portrait: Sleepy Talon (Oil, 20 x 16)

Talon is a handsome young man studying at Edison College (I forgot the current name of the school). He is also our regular model. I believe it is the third time that I painted him. You may find his portraits I painted before in the painting gallery of the blog. During the break, he told me that he planned to go to graphic design program at University of South Florida, from which I retired.

This morning Talon seemed too tired to keep his eyes open. He had difficulty staying straight but often leaned back to his left-hand side. Some of my fellow artists immediately yelled, "He needs some coffee!" I decided to paint just the way he was.
