How to paint a a portrait in stages...

The start of the face. Canvas primed a soft green.


Working out from something I like...this face was painted in one sitting

Took about two hours to get here. Sheer in the shadows.


When things go well, I love what I do, how about you?

This is a wonderful portrait and the step by step shots were SOOO helpful to me! It's interesting and encouraging to me that you completed the face in sections, after the initial plan was laid down. I'd like to see more step by step paintings of yours.
