This is Pittsburgh Steeler Defensive End, Brett Keisel from Greybull, Wyoming. I posed him where he hunts, up on the famous Carter Mountain Range. This is located right above where we live in Cody, Wyoming.
This painting is traditional oils on museum-grade Masonite. The finished size is 18″ x 24″.
Here is the final version of Brett’s portrait.
Here are four close-ups of my final version to show all the detail. One little side note, if you look at the last close-up, you will see a small pair of buffalo tracks after my signature. This is to commemorate Brett’s High School mascot and my company name.
I want to thank Brett for allowing me to paint his image. Also, I want to thank my wife Leigh, for taking her valuable time to photograph all the images of this painting.
Thanks for riding along. Stay tuned, there are many more of my works in progress to come.
