This is a small ala prima (painted all in one sitting of about six hours) painting on canvas panel of a salt and pepper handsome "silver fox." The paint is very thick on this and has a variety of textures. The beard is thick short dashy kind of strokes with short hair like marks etched into the paint with a pencil and the butt end of the brush. The background is literally troweled on thick paint in layers over thin washy underpainting.
