This is a new portrait, in oils, that I started at the weekend. I didn't realise that I hadn't put anything at all on my website, I have put a couple of pictures of the start of it on my facebook page that can be accessed through a link on the Home page of this website. I have started to add colour to it now after doing the underpainting in raw umber and titanium white. I still have a few things to do on it, like the eyes and adding some hair to eyebrows and eyelids. All I have done with the eyeballs at the moment is blocked in with burnt umber and I intend then to start to work in yellow ochre to give the eyes the correct colour.
