I’m still working on the background, this may take the longest even though I’m not planning on going super high detail with it.
The first “block-in” layer of paint on the background is loose and simple. Perfect for when my mind is not super focused or when I know I’m not in the best mind state to be able to focus hard. I plan on going back to the portrait at some point, I’ve lived with it for a few days now and the expression isn’t were it should be. There are tiny changes that I’m missing here and I must get them right.
