Endless hours? Endless weeks! The painting took about 12 weeks but most of that was painting the jumper, the stitches, folds, and varying light and shade was easily 8 weeks! Sometimes it's hard to keep going when committed but trying to speed up and do it quicker is a recipe for disaster!

How do you go about painting every stitch in his jumper, and at the same time account for the folds and curves. Amazing.

I love the expression and the work you did on the knitting texture. I keep waiting for Roger to say something to me.

It's almost ridiculous how real this looks and how you can see every knot in the sweater... Amazing work!
