    Portrait for a friend

    My friend asked if I could do a portrait of her late Father.

    That looks very good so far. I'm also doing a portrait, and am intrigued you are also using a darker layer underneath. Do you paint on layers?

    Hi,

    Thanks

    Yes I paint on layers. I will either have my grid or guidelines and maybe base layer.

    I used a dark background as I use pastel on grey background in real life sometimes.
    I was told always have a shaded layer so its easier to compare colours against each other.
