Frank Victoria Portrait

After nine years in the trenches with Frank on the Weta Front, he has finally been posted home to France mission accomplished. I usually tend to try bust out some crappy digital portrait of long term leavers at Weta, but this time I decided to complicate matters by trying oil painting.
Here is the final painting and the whole torturous process for all to see. Bon Voyage Frank, I am sick of seeing your face :) and the portrait is in the post.
