A midnight painting

Here’s Ray in his favorite spot with MY favorite sweater. This is another alla prima study (after studying the paintings of Richard Schmid); I’m going to try to do more of these small studies every week, in addition to the larger paintings I’m working on. 

We were away from home most of the day today but after we got home I wasn’t tired at all so I decided to see if I could paint this one in one sitting, which I did. And now I have stayed up WAY too late, so good-night, all!
