More work in progress







Doesn't this look creepy! The kids think I'm painting a zombie mwa ha ha! So, I'm back from a self induced chocolate coma. . . . ready to do more work on this painting.
I've started on a few of my favorite things. . . eyes, nose and mouth! (ok, not really the nose but I guess I'll have to paint it!) I've started defining the eyes with some yellow so they have that "inner glow" when I finish up the details later on and I've started defining the nostril and mouth with some permanent rose and a little blue and burnt sienna.
The eye brows can be tricky and end up looking like they're painted on if your not careful, so I started lightly with burnt sienna and will keep defining them with some other colors as I go, I don't want to over do it just yet!
Ok, back to my chocolate!

thanks for posting your wip...I love looking at stages of painting and photographing mine as I go too, it's fun to look back on.
I'm right there with you on the chocolate..I was nibbling last night while working on my blog!
Keep us posted on FB so I can look at your progress.

Yes, early stage painting to tend to look a bit creepy til the features are in place.

I love the subtle shadows here. It will be a beautiful portrait.
