A middle aged man sits in a chair facing right, wearing a stern expression as he looks over his shoulder at us. He has hazel eyes, fair skin and ruddy cheeks, thick sandy brown hair cropped below his ear, and a long, neatly brushed, chest length beard that flows down in front of his dark smock. He rests his right hand on the arm of the chair, and in his left hand he holds a wooden palette with colors on it, and a few paint brushes. Filling the background is a tall, golden brown folding screen with a pebbled texture and painted floral designs.
