Hello Steemians! Usually I tend to paint my portrait studies alla prima in one session but yesterday I've decided to paint in different fashion - go with thin layers of paint to establish the main body of the painting and leave it to dry to enrich and refine it with a glazes later. I used palette of Titanium White, Yellow Ochre, Cad Yellow, Cad Orange, Car Red, Alizarin and Ivory Black, for the second pass I will probably add Viridian or Ultramarine to background. Will post the second stage as soon it dries to continue. Size is 9x12", support is oil grounded linen

What do you think? Hope you dig it ;)

Love it Arthur! Looking forward to the second stage.

Thank you, Leo! I deeply appreciate it!

You captured his expression perfectly, a lot of character in his eyes.

This is beautiful @arthurgain! 😍 I absolutely dig it, no doubt! 🙏

thank you @mayasky! Love your work here on steemit!

It is a very sensitive portrait.

WOW WOW
THIS IS LOVELY YOU REALLY GOT A PART OF HIS USUAL EXPRESSION
YOU REALLY DID A GREAT WORK WITH HIS EYES

an advice though, why not include some process images in your works, you can't tell who will come to visit your blog.

Wow really great painting! Thanks for sharing your technique.
