Portrait

I’m really excited by the way this one turned out. I mean, seriously excited. As I was painting it and was watching it emerge I was all ‘Oooh, eek, look at that!’. To the point that I felt quite worried about finishing it, in case I spoiled it.

I honestly think this is the most successful thing I’ve ever drawn or painted.

I used a different reference picture for this one – a much more vibrant, defined picture. The lesson I learned here is that the better the reference pic, the easier it is too paint it.

This was the underpainting.
