As the crow flies VII

Today’s progress was minimal, but effective. I worked on adding colour to the second en grisaille layer, which I never did take a picture of. The first layer of colour has gone down pretty well, as usual I see an host of irritating details that I will need to put right, and not much time left. (mouth too small and too dark, nose completely wrong, grumpy expression, not enough detail in the arms, hands and hair… I’m looking at a few days work to really get things right.)

The piece is shaping up well, and I think it will work out well in the show. There’s a fair bit of work yet to do adding more crows.
