[Above] A few finishing touches and the background tidied up.
Dirty titanium white scumbled over the image in an attempt (half-successful) to get the drawing more correct. If I screw up my eyes and look at this painting it does bear some reasonably close resemblance to my face.
Can’t do any more. The paint just gets dirtier and dirtier.
Useful exercise though.
