Hiya folx, I have recently started to paint a portrait of old good pirate Andrew, who is a real person (he's wearing pirate outfit when walking in old part of my city). The portrait is not finished yet - I will be working a bit more on the face. I'm in trouble as for creating a background that fits... What motive could I use or that pure "air" is the best choice??? I'm open to your suggesion(s). :)

I like it as it is, it remember me the old children books
the background is good as it is,
what I will change a bit it will be a bit more contrast in the drawing
headlines,also a new color like grey light or dark pink in it to change
a bit this yellowish all over. The expression is well done but if you want to
work on it more it will be perhaps even better.:)

Use the terrible weather and finish it:) for me the only advantage of the rain is that im staying at home and draw.
