Amazing to see your progress pics, Mike! Looking at the finished portrait, I wouldn't have guessed that you started out with a blue underpainting. Gorgeous work!
WOW! Thanks Mike for sharing, it was fascinating to see it develop, like Thaneeya I wouldn't have guessed a blue under painting, Absolutely Stunning Work!!!
Thanks Thaneeya and Jess. You will notice that tonal values are more important to this kind of work than the colours.
