Boy with blue

I had found this picture of a boy in between theĀ leafletsĀ of a forgotten novel, this picture was taken off of a page from the National Geographic magazine the date, issue and photographer however, is unknown to me. It is a photograph of a slum boy in New Delhi. His bright blue eyes are of the most remarkable kind and I felt I must capture it in art. Even though realistic portraits is somewhat new to my style of art, it is always fun to discover different sides to ones capabilities.
