I found an old scanned photo of my dad from the 1950’s. I just wanted to do something with it, so for the last few days I painted it, digitally.
The original scan is 56 kb in size and very blurred.
The only way to actually enjoy this was to start from scratch and paint it.
This is the result.
Update: My Dad did recognize himself and Mom said this is how he looked when he came to visit riding his bicycle nearly 60 km to her. That was 62 years ago.

Your painting is really wonderful Adrian, and a loving tribute to your father, too.
Wow, you really captured the essence, and character of that old family photograph! Well done!
Superb, very well done.
Well done .So beautiful.
That turned out very well! 🙂
I’m so glad your dad was able to recognize himself in your painting so true to the photograph!
Yeah, me too.
Wow, I’m impressed.
You did a very good job 🙂
