'Giles' Stage 2
Stage 2 is complete and I'm reasonably satisfied with the brushwork but I need to strengthen some of the tonal values in places. I changed my palette slightly for this painting and exchanged cadmium red for rose madder. Rose madder is cooler than cadmium red but it suited the flesh tones I wanted to achieve. My camera hasn't picked up the warmth of the skin tones so well but tomorrow I'll take a photo in daylight...of the completed portrait if all goes to plan!
