    These to me are the some of the most punishing of all portraits, which is why it’s time to face it head on and get some fear going!! Continuing with subtle skin 2020 I will follow my last piece’s texture creations, the skin itself will not tolerate any erasing so should be fun! I’ve rendered the eyes which had about 10 layers and will get more treatment later on. I spent about 1hr making a tone, which was mostly red violet and burnt sienna, with a dash of blue. The tone felt hard to make for some reason, FFE9B1A3-DAE6-4E08-ADB2-11B781835A18.jpeg

    A4306C1A-596E-4BC0-BA8C-FE0AAA6BA6C9.jpeg Thanks for the comments folks! Really enjoying this piece, or more accurately, enjoying the fear of mucking up! A micro second too long on the trigger and BAM it’s over. This is 100% transparent so no “buffer” to rely on! (By choice)

    And some tones made on the fly! Have to start the hat now as I will get carried away and wreck it (shadows up next) 3B24EA17-637E-41B5-8E84-2D70ECFBBBE6.jpeg

    And a hat and more highlights in the eyes, started the hat with a buffered deep blue, that could also double up as a baby blue by over reducing it :) A57DDE95-D94A-40F1-9512-BEFD97B83DCE.jpeg

    Thanks Franc, its a fear inducing feeling of going too dark, which I have in a few places already (at least I think that at this stage), I feel that the subtle texture above the lip worked, which will give me more confidence to try more subtle pieces,
