Portrait of Boy - Color Under Painting

Color Under Painting - 16x16" Gallery Wrapped Canvas
Well I got more carried away with the details than I had planned.... as I often do - but I still managed to keep some areas loose....hard to break old habits. 

Now I need to leave the under painting to dry the next step is to build up the skin layers as accurately as possible. His lash line ended up much to harsh but will be softened and much of the darkest areas of the lashes will be cut into with the skin tones so they will not look so harsh, that is my plan anyway ;)

I really tried to keep things less chromatic at this stage so that the next layer can be more chromatic yet show the shadows underneath.  I really enjoyed this phase ...now to find the time to mix up all the skin values and paint!
