John Gift!

Today was the last day I had free to spend on this portrait of John before the entrants are due for the portrait awards.
I would love to have another good day to spend working on a few things here, but overall, I am happy with how this has turned out!
Lets hope it makes it to the awards :)

More updates

Working more;
Updates so far, still moving along without a specific plan, just having a feel for the painting and John's personality as I paint this. So far so good. I have been working down from top to bottom, Johns arms are the next on the list and as you can see I have a big sploge of terrible makeup looking skin colour on his right bicep, lol, sorry John......

More of a close up. This background was fun as it was mostly experimental. I have been scumbling colours over the canvas and today I glazed extra  colours over the scumble. It has given a really cool stained glass window effect. It is fun to experiment and have a win instead of a lump of yukky mud!! :)
