the many faces of Basil.

This portrait reminds me of some of the fascinating books and movies dealing with multiple personality that I have seen over the years! A flick of colour here, a highlight or shadow there, and he undergoes a complete character change....

(To see the background, see the post before last....)

It still looks more like a long lost relative than Basil himself, but as a general painting of a guy relaxing it seems to work!

Meanwhile, whilst having all these facelifts on canvas, the real Basil is having a fab holiday in Thailand... hope you are enjoying it!

Nice to see the play of colours in these! He makes a superb model.

Lovely paintings. I know what you mean about undergoing a character change, but I love that, makes the art work much more interesting
