Step 6

Another session working all over the painting. Another dark wash on the background, more colour in the folds of the shirt, the first washes on the vest, more colour on the hair and beard, and a wash of yellow over the face. I can't do anything more until it dries thoroughly. However, it will have plenty of time to dry since I have to work the next two days.

Step 5

I softened some of the edges of the folds, added more colour to the hair and beard, and added darker values to better define the face. Now I have to wait for everything to dry before I can do more.

Step 4

Today I worked all over the painting. I darkened the background, started working out the folds in the shirt sleeves, added some masking fluid on the white hairs of the beard and hair, worked some more on the eyes and the facial skin tones. I need to let it dry now before I can go on.
