More work on Jon Snow today, and I decided to try a technique I read about in The Encyclopaedia of Acrylic Techniques by Hazel Harrison. That being using acrylics in conjunction with pastels.
I did this by doing a layer of pastel work and then using a stiff bristled flat top brush to stipple a layer of matte medium on top of it.
Honestly, I really like how this came out.
Argh, my photos never come out quite right.
Anyway, I also did some work on hi face with pastels and coloured pencils as well as painting his eyes some more. Here's a close up.
I wasn't planning to do more work on this tomorrow, but looking at these photos, I think I need to take a look at this in the cold light of day.
I am hoping to get that promised extract of Silver Crosses up tomorrow too.
