Painting Walt | Day 5

Portrait of Walt Lyons | in progress

More Walt work yesterday.  I’m trying to finalize the head by adding glazes to the shadowed areas. I think I need to work on the forehead and upper head areas a bit more to get the proper roundness.

I added an earth green glaze over the background, but I’m not sure if it even shows up.  I’ll try a few layers of it and see if it makes a difference.

Also worked on the shirt, adding more whites and green glaze from the background.

And I also concentrated on the plate of food, trying to build the mass and texture of the spaghetti.  It’s going to need at least one more session to look good.
