This morning has been mainly set aside to block in the Duke's face. Again it's more about adding tones and greyscale values to his face rather than defining his features too much..yes, i'm trying not to be too finicky at this stage. I also gave his wee traffic cone hat a few strokes - I'm deliberating on using a 'mahl' stick to make the hat a little straighter at the edges...but then again, i'm kinda liking the 'weather-beaten' look of it so far.
I've never actually painted a horse before, so i'm really enjoying the process.
Hope you're having a creative day, and I hope you're enjoying the progress of the old Duke and his horse so far.
See ye tomorra!
Whit's he up tae noo?
