This is stage Five of the portrait, work has been done on the eyes and nose areas you can see the details are starting to come to life - a lot still to do.
This is stage Four of the portrait, I have spent a lot of time concentrating on the ear also adding some detail to the eyes.
This is stage three of the portrait, start to add detail to the eyes and ear, more of the base tone is also added to the neck, this will give the depth and allow the detail to show later in the portrait.
This is stage two of the portrait, more of the base tone is added, this will give the depth and allow the detail to show later in the portrait.
This is the start of my portrait, I started with the outline and base tone, this will give depth and allow the detail to show later in the portrait.
