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.

Work in Progress… Charcoal Underpainting (Study)

Rembrant drawing 2

This is an underpainting done with charcoal. I will painting over this in verdaccio, which is done using a combination of grays, greens, and brown color. It is a technique used in classical paintings. This is my rendition of a self-portrait by Rembrandt. I will be finalizing the details this weekend before painting this. This is the first time I have gone this detailed on a drawing before painting.
