Painting in Progress

Spread the love

AFTER A BIT of a hiatus (caused by a rest needed after a two-month-long commission for a Muswell Hill Restaurant, of which more later), I have returned to my B.B King portrait painting. This started as a pencil sketch, which I was very lucky to actually sell at my last exhibition.

I have started with a blue tonal underlay which I am gradually covering in dabs of primary colours, hoping it all adds up to a convincing skin tone. It was tempting to finish it all off with blue shades to reflect the style of music but playing with colours is far too alluring, especially for someone partially-colour blind like myself!
