the painting progresses with stages 4 - 6.
Whilst I was happy with the face, I was not too happy with the arms.
They do get changed within these stages and in the final stage too.
Sometimes I leave an area if I am not happy with it and change it right at the last.
4) More work around the face and beard
5) deepening the darks
6) under wash on crown of thorns
I have to finish up the crown of thorns and then make any adjustments necessary - and you will see the finished painting on Friday.
