Limited Palette Oil Portrait

Slightly longer session this time, concentrating mostly on the face.
I did try out a little glazing on the body (because it's a technique I haven't done in oil) I found it fascinating and hope to attempt a future painting using this technique!
For this one though, I'll go in and start on the body to unify.

Session 4
My model has tattoos!
I've asked him to remove them for the sake of my sanity but he's refused! LOL!
I actually chose this reference for all of it's challenges; the angle, the lighting, the tats!
I like to give myself as many challenges as I can when starting in a new medium... it is, in my opinion, the best way to learn.
