B.B. King ... Kinda!

This quick study of B.B. King was challenging since I decided to use some color instead of the tonal studies of blues singers that I have done in the last weeks. Without using a small brush I am not satisfied with the "likeness". Portraits are such a difficult thing! I think it must take a very long time to be really good at it. I may have started too late!
