I'm working through some ideas about paint application now so I figured I'd start a head study of myself. This is a dryly handled ebauche, which means that I'm only using a small amount of medium for this stage.
I'm using portrait colors, which are as follows:
Cadmium Red Light
Ivory Black (very small amount)
I don't have the best luck with finishing self portraits, but I'll finish this one, I promise.
