Gypsy Man — Painting

I am finished. This is oils on a 16×24 MDF panel. This last couple of weeks I just looked at him and mulled him over in my mind. I had to make up a new palette this afternoon, when I finally came to the place where I could work on him again.

The painting was done from a photo by Pierre Gonnord.

(This photo is not of a gypsy, it is of a friend from Ohio who wore my purple scarf for a photo shoot for me. I just thought she looked a little like a gypsy, so I used the photo here.)

Gypsies have no boundaries. They have primitive, untamed personalities and “that look in their eyes.” — Karl Wiggins
