The short story behind this SBS is that I selected Herb as a paint pal. I would like to briefly show the steps here how I paint such small portraits. The basis of the painting is the transfer, for this I print out the photo and blacken the back. Then I transfer the proportions with a pencil. The hat and the collar were added freehand. In this picture I only cut out the glasses as a template. The rest is sprayed layer by layer in thin layers. the hair and lights are scratched with glass fiber and a knife. Soft areas are lightened with the eraser. Everything was painted with Createx Illustration Colors Black opaque and my CM-SB. The picture was sealed with clear varnish Lesonal Titanium. Also a very good clear coat. I hope you like the instructions, I wish you a Merry Christmas!
