oil on board
I managed to complete 'Giles' this afternoon, though things didn't go quite to plan as I ran out of light AGAIN before he was ready to photograph. So this is another photo taken in artificial light. If you compare this finished version to stage 2 in yesterday's post, you'll see that I've altered the shape of the face slightly. I decided it was too chunky with the chin too square. I also strengthened some of the dark values and added a little coolness to the shadow areas. With 'Giles' finished I'm ready to start the next one tomorrow!
