    About 4 years ago I done Morgan’s portrait, I remember feeling pretty happy at the time as it was to me a complex piece!
    It’s time I re done this, I am making the scale smaller to include the entire face and hair!
    as always, I’m starting by creating a base of texture to build on top of, I’m using all the premixed paints from last few classes! I purchased 50 x 15ml eye dropper bottles for $12AU Del! Since then I’ve saved so much paint ;) FEFE8BAF-C47F-4B10-98DA-05EA76063E06.jpeg 0FAEFE50-F82D-4903-B7CB-C40B429A6573.jpeg
    Thanks for looking

    Interesting progress! Quite different from your others! A huge amount of texture going down!

    Started on the hair and needed to put some of the background colour in, deep desaturated violet, started adding smaller details in the skin, using thinner paints. CB0F05A6-8593-4031-9D54-0C4327E67CB0.jpeg

    I’m now practicing on skin texture and hair. I’m getting a little better with a blade scratching hairs but how do you do the squiggly ones? A dowel?

    Sinking hairs into the back ground, this is when Opaque paint is king, as you control how much it blends with no repercussions of shifting values! 3ED5DB7F-6A5A-4425-9839-BBEE862CEB90.jpeg

    And the suit is done, for a couple of issues with the back ground where I leaned on a paper towel to protect it of all things, but it lifted the not fully dry paint! DFF13044-A779-4675-8E3C-1CF6DC024F67.jpeg
