Am much happier with this painting now, having struggled last week for some reason.
I have enjoyed adding in the final details and getting the horizontal lines straight enough so that the eye of the viewer is not immediately drawn to them (hopefully).
Layering on glazes help to soften the skin tones and add depth to the man’s shirt.
Lastly, it’s the adding in the touches of pure colour which complete the work for me. There is always a danger of adding in too much colour at this stage and then the painting ends up looking overworked. I have taken a few touches out as a result and I am now satisfied with the final composition.
Could not resist making the guy’s bum a little neater too….
