Still trying to dig him out of the canvas ... he's in there somewhere. The face is so small that the slightest error in a paint-stroke changes the whole face. I like to paint big.
I didn't realise I could produce so many variations of grey/gray using Mars Black, Titanium White and Raw Umber. I found that if I got the wrong combination on the canvas, the 'whitest' looked blue. I'm learning as I go ... talk about a limitless limited palette!!!!!!
Here's my progress so far
