It's all gone a little bit wrong, I knew it had as soon as I started but had to carry on to make sure that it was even.  I have started to add colour to this portrait and began using yellow ochre mixed with a burnt umber and white, that wasn't quite right, so I then just added burnt umber and loads of white.  At least he still looks alive, usually when it goes really wrong they look dead.  I will have to wait for this layer to dry and then attempt to put it right later
