I'm still using up old canvasses and painting over images I didn't like. This is another of Tripod contemplating his next move . The subtle, thoughtful pose doesn't indicate what goes on inside his head. Its somewhere you probably don't want to go...
This is the image so far. I still have a little work to do to add some more definition to the face and its done. Its 8" x 10" on stretched canvas in acrylics. Eyes are difficult for me to achieve in this medium. The ability to blend paint well is limited in acrylic as it dries so quickly, especially as I'm using glazes for colour in the eyes.
A few well placed Anglo Saxon phrases and a few repaints and I think I'm there with the eyes.
