Final Oil Painting Portrait

This is day 4 on this piece. This was very tough without the color reference but I ended up looking at several pictures and found ones that I liked. I had to build up color carefully and slowly. I should have waited for the painting to dry with each step, but I chose to work on it regardless. What is nice about using the grisaille method is that it prevents paintings from becoming too chromatic. In other words, one has more control of color and value.

I have painted over the charcoal drawings adjusting a few things. I will add more details once I add color. I am really happy how this is turning out.

Work in Progress Painting

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.
