The other day, one of my favorite photographers, Steve McCurry, posted an incredible photo of a fellow photographer in Afghanistan. I couldn't help but do a painting of it.

The first is my painting, done in digital oils. The second is the original photo on the left, mine on the right so you can see them together. I didn't get quite as close as I would have liked, but I'm still happy with how it turned out, especially since I did it in about 4.5hrs.
