I've been really into Lucian Freud's work lately, so while at the library the other day I checked out one of his books and did a copy of his portrait, Gaz.  

 It's definitely one of my favorites by him.  Gaz, a Soho club musician, looks like quite the character, and Freud describes him as such in an interview.  Freud says, "[he] was sort of ludicrous.  He was always making difficulties, but they were basically economic, so I didn't mind."   He also quipped, "...The thing is, he was boring and fascinating at the same time."
