A Portrait of Paul

A Portrait of Paul, by Mary Stebbins Taitt.

This is a digitally altered photograph. I painted over the photo with a smudge brush in Photoshop. It took me over seven hours to complete this portrait. I did not do it with filters and effects. I did it in the car driving from to Detroit to NY (where I am now) and some after
I got here. Click image to view larger. There are five versions of this so far, this is version 2.

In this small version, it is hard to see the details, so I think I will add a detail.
