"Mr Cool" Lenny Kravitz 71x91cm

Here is my latest painting, its my first painted caricature and I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I had been sketching the idea out for weeks and I eventually got the sketch to the stage I was happy enough with and I started working it onto a canvas and I think it developed as the painting went on. I really enjoyed doing this kinda portrait and hope to do more like it in the future I think I get to put more of myself into this kind of work and its not as tight as my typical portraits. If you look at the sunglasses you can see the reflection of the Newyork skyline where Lenny Kravitz is from. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
