Portrait of “Oupa Japie”

This is a portrait of an old man that everyone called “Oupa Japie” (Grandpa Japie), this photo was taken by a friend that went to visit him while he was looking after his grandchildren after both their parents had died. He was friendly and jovial despite his dire circumstances and that is what I tried to capture in this painting. 12″x16″ in acrylic on board. $900
