The White Hat – after Jean-Baptiste Greuze, work in progress

Although I haven’t been posting much lately I am indeed still working on stuff…most of it is not ready to be shown to the public yet though. I have been doing a lot of drawings and stuff, especially figures and faces.
Here is another master study that I drew a while ago and finally transferred to canvas and started painting. Click for a bigger version, it’s easier to see once it’s bigger. You can see the pen drawing on canvas with the first imprimatura paint layer. I have also started to paint in the background and the oval ‘frame’ around the portrait.
