I was commissioned to do the following painting of William Sanders Scarborough and I am almost done with the under-painting with charcoal. This is my first time going this detailed before painting, but I think for this one it was necessary to get it done this way. There is no reference available with color so this will be a challenging piece. I plan on using very thin glazes so that the drawing shows through.
Charcoal on 14″ x 16″ Wooden Panel.
