Random Portraits 1&2 (from found photos)

After doing some talking with Tyler Jacobson it's becoming apparent how far I still have to go to feel competent as someone who draws and paints. Specifically I am l focusing on learning how to paint people. So I am going to start painting from photos so as Tyler put it, I can start to build a visual language of how people should look. Up first are post card sized gouache paintings from random portraits found on the internet.
