Domenico Fichera

With a liiiiittle bit of artistic licence on the jacket, here is finally the completed prize painting for Domenico Fichera, the gold medal winner for the Sidesword & Rotella category in the English Sidesword Open 2020 tournament 😀

This was inspired by my visits to the Wallace Collection and seeing all of the amazing paintings there. I really wanted to have a go at this kind of art. I’ve not had much experience before so it took a little while to get used to, plus I had to wrangle what little free time I have to get it done XD In the end though I’m very happy with the result \o/ I’m looking forward to drawing the other winners in time :>

Domenico also won the gold medal for the Sidesword & Dagger category, so methinks another painting of him will be in order XD
