    Good start to the color and follow-up to the BW one. Always a trip watching something unfold in stages. Go man go!

    A quite promising study and possibly start to follow master Rembrandt in one of his sublime painting lessons!

    From looking at the big strokes you use, you might want to switch to Franz Hals. He was roughly the same vintage and part of the world, and so on. But he used what they called 'bravura brushstrokes'. And you seem to be getting those straight off in a way, probably owing to the size you're working and so on. So why not try a copy of one of his portraits. They're not quite underpainting loose, but they're a bit broader than Rembrandt and you might have fun.

    Cool use of the tools.

    On fingerpainting and Rembrandt: "The old masters worked over glazes with the fingers or the ball of the hand to bring out the nuances through which the painting gradually became colorful and mysterious" (Max Doerner)
