Study #1 of the "Old Willie" painting.
This was the start of my second study...I was a bit rushed. Looking back this feels so line driven I think I got fixated on the planes of paint instead of the planes of the head! I had to finish in a hurry so I did not yet correct the asymmetry of the eyes....lots to learn.
Here is study 2 finished. I really shrunk his shoulders...one of many mistakes.
Here is a detail of study #2...I could have defined that shine on his nose much better...I tweaked this with a small round bristle brush at the end..it left so many tracks...oh well on to the next one.
