Portrait: Busker

I'm currently working towards a group portrait exhibition to be held in Bath during July. The theme is to choose local subjects that represent Bath in some way to the artist. All the portraits are very small, no bigger than A6 in size. My first is this portrait of a the Jamaican busker who stands on Bath's main shopping street singing loudly. Due to his loud and constant singing I have yet to discover his name, or anything about him.

Nope, I take it back. I love this piece:) Makes me happy to look at it, and that's a real good thing in my book.

The colors are beautiful. Busker sounds like a good name. It just matches him for some reason. The texture in the guitar is awesome. I thank you for sharing Busker.
