I didn’t paint much this week. I had a terrible cold. I slept a lot. Before I was debilitated by mucous I managed to paint this rough underpainting. It has elements that I enjoy painting: lettering, translucence, and details. Just for fun I thought I would practice my portrait skills. It’s been about a year since I attempted a portrait. There are clearly some flaws in the lettering and the lighter fluid can (lettering can be cleaned up and the edges refined). There are also some errors in the rendering of the bottle.
I will fix those when I feel better. Every time I look over at the creepy little doll head I get a good laugh.
