I cannot find out who did this painting, but I thought this face was very interesting. I decided it would go well with my Portrait of a Girl. I did the same thing with this one that I did with that one: painted the paper (it came out darker) and pushed and pulled with the charcoal. He is much more stern and serious, but I like him. I think they will look good framed and hung next to each other.
I've known a hundred kinds of love; All made the loved one rue; And what is thine that it should prove Than other love, more true? -- Emily Bronte
