Work in progress continued from yesterday

Gotta get more darks in the background to better assess my values for the boys..

Ive done a bit more laying in facial tones and indicating where the eyes will be. Those plaid shirts could be quite daunting..

The hair is basically anything left on my mixing tray and a few sprays of water.

Skin tones going on the legs, being careful to go around the sun dapples.

Concentrating on getting the reflected lights right..a streak of new gamboge inside the top left upper leg, and along the jaw lines.

Oh my! This painting is really coming along beautifully!

How strange - I've never really liked water colour paintings... I was obviously looking at the wrong ones!!
