Self Portrait Update

I spent most of Monday and Tuesday working on my History of Painting Techniques self portrait. So far so good. The underpainting of the flesh was all done using Indian Red, Ivory Black and Cremnitz White. Once I resolve all of the drawing issues, I’ll be putting on a couch of Transparent Gold Ochre with a little bit of Vermillion Red and putting back in some highlights with inverted compliments, which should make it look more fleshy. Just need to find the time to paint in the palette, the mahl stick and fix a couple of drawing issues in the wrists.
