Well, time to have a crack at painting a portrait
Reference photo- mum and dad shortly before dad died
Drawing- charcoal, sprayed with fixative then overpainted with clear gesso
Painting- DMP palette, paints Langridge mixed with SDM, mixing as I go along
About 2 1/2 hrs painting time.
Theres probably going to be some artistic license with this. My mum would like my dad to look a bit less frail, and more like how he was before he got sick, although I can see a lot of beauty in his frailty.
