Faculty Show 2013
It's kind of exciting to have a new, prominent figure painter teaching a workshop this year. You can usually see his work every year when Forum Gallery comes to Chicago for the annual art expo.
As Tor pointed out, he painted the highlights of the eyes with the reflection off a glob of black paint.
(This is a portrait of Kishio Takeda who had the southwest studio on the second floor for many years)
For some reason, Misha Livshulz has been a very popular model this year.
Here's Mary Qian's version of that same scruffy face.
