    El Cigarrillo

    In this portrait I wanted to contrast the rugged guy with the soft translucent cigarette smoke. First time I've depicted smoke. Wanted to show him sighing out the smoke along with the cigarette creating its own smoke. Done on my ipad with the watercolor brush and airbrush mostly.

    I quit 14 years ago. . .hard to imagine how time flies. . .

    Anyway to the painting, the rugged, you got beautifully. I'd even say it's a great depiction of someone like this. Good job!

    Lindae.
    "El Cigarrilo" is an engrossing portrait of a rugged, unpretentious
    chap who has seen his share of life and has many stories to tell.
    A captivating personality and excellent art work!
