Head and sky

Finding a couple of spare hours in the studio, I cleaned brushes and got to work on the sky, using a Cobalt blue to the orange clouds on the upper right and repairing the error I made last time, caused by dragging a rag over too young a layer, causing the paint to tear and leave unsightly holes that are difficult to match or blend out of the affected area. I also worked on the face of the Fool, en grisaille, first layer painted in Van Dyke brown to define the features in a fairly linear style, then using the Ceramic white to add body to the face.
