Started this new portrait today, at about 7'o'clock this morning to be precise.  I think I was still in Brussels time to be honest.  This portrait is going to stay macroed right in and I have already started to add lots of wrinkles.  The eye is also going to be quite extreme in the way it will look, a creepy one all round really.  Only two colours are being used again, raw umber and titanium white and, at the moment I am not sure whether I will be adding colour or not.  I will see how it goes.  As usual too, the painting is flat, none of the paint is put on thickly.  The only bit I am struggling with is the top eyelid and this will need a bit more work to get it completely right.
