Gangster in a Fedora Hat?
Derrick posed for the Hyter Group in a green hat and he was posed in front of a green backdrop. I was not there the day they posed him or I might have asked why. Anyway-- too much green so I changed the color of his hat to maroon and I like the effect much better. A green hat will always be associated with Robin Hood in my mind. I think he looks a bit like a gangster in this painting.
