The Traveler has gained some jeans and a flask at his belt. This first layer is a little bright, so I’ll drop it back a bit later on with some Van Dyke Brown to deepen the shadows. I’ve added highlights to the jacket so that I can re-glaze it with the iron oxide then a touch of Prussian blue to deepen the colour and make it darker, matching the upper part of the coat. I altered the grey spiral to a gold and added some white highlights to the buttons, soon to be glazed with some Cadmium Yellow so the highlights pop up from the Raw Sienna that’s there right now. I’m getting quite excited by the prospect of finishing this piece pretty soon, perhaps I’ll plan a party to reveal it.
