'Alexander' almost finished

8" x 8"
oil on board

I made good progress  with 'Alexander 'today.  He's almost finished, just some tweaking to do.  He needs a little more work around the hairline and I'm not yet totally convinced about the surrounding area, but on the whole I'm happy with him. It's fascinating the huge amount of subtle colour changes present in the flesh. I seemed to make even more colour mixes for the flesh tones in this portrait and ran out of room on my very large palette! 
I would like to wish you all a Happy Easter weekend and I hope you have a fun and relaxing time, despite our prolonged winter weather!!!
