As I thought this figure painting has progressed much faster than the previous paintings. I’ve started on the detail for this session, working from the head down.

I’m kinda wishing that I made this figure larger and started on a larger canvas. I have to pull out a very small brush to get the details in the face. I also need to invest into a good maul stick.
