I've added more layers to this portrait. I'm still not sure if its going where I want it to yet. Parts of it are, parts not yet. The right eye won't cooperate, but I'm hoping to persuade it to before long.
The paint around the eyes will be more smudged and defined at the same time. The hair is a wig and bright blue. That's a challenge and I may have to call in a bit of pastel to help me out on it in places. At least the 300lb paper is robust and allows some flexibility in scrubbing back without damaging the surface.
The whole piece is a little creepy but interesting at the same time.
