This is the new portrait that I started yesterday.  I didn't put it on here because I couldn't really show you the start of it, it looked really rediculous, I think it's getting better although it still has a long way to go.  This is the underpainting where I am painting in all of the high and lowlights.  The colours that I am using at the moment are raw umber and titanium white and a little bit of burnt umber to mark out where the hair is going to go.  I had to start the hair because it added more balance to the face and helped with marking out where everything goes.  I like that little highlight at the back of the neck and hair and will probably be leaving that even though it was a bit of an accident.
