painting in oils - 5

With this phase in the oil painting I felt like I was zeroing in on the final piece.

I glazed red again pretty aggressively because the coolness of the previous stage really bothered me. I thought I wanted the shadows to be cool but I just didn't like it.

When I rubbed it out I felt like I was getting closer to what I was looking for.

Then I began the final Titanium white highlights stage.

Next post : Final details / darkening the hair / reddening the lips.
