Another three hours work this afternoon and I'm pretty confident it's finished. I added a pale yellow wash over the whole painting so it looks like it is late afternoon. I'll leave it overnight and look with fresh eyes in the morning in case I see any corrections. Then I just have to apply the protective finish and the hanging hardware.

Another few hours work done. More work on the shirt (still more layers to go) and then I spent most of the time working out the contours of the face. It still looks very flat because I haven't gone dark enough but I needed to put in the underpainting to feel out where all the features go before going for the darks. Still many more layers to go but finally starting to look like something.

Another few hours done today. I'm taking a little break and then I'll do some more. I've started the first washes on the skin tones, corrected more of the eyes, and put more colour in the shirt. The shirt won't end up this colour. I just needed to add layers of colour for depth.
