First stages of George!

8" x 12"
oil on board
I started this painting of George late this afternoon. As you can see he's a proper chilled out baby! I've spent about two hours working on the painting so far.This is a real challenge as his skin is flawless like porcelain unlike a nice worn in face of an adult with lots of undulations and contour lines to work with!  His skin has a cool hue so I'm using a warm contrasting ground. I'm happy with the way it's going so far and even though I'm working from an image I will limit the time I spend on the painting so as not to overwork it...probably one more long session and a short session just to add any finishing touches. I'll post you an update tomorrow!
