This painting was started in 2018 as a sketch and was left for several years before I picked it up again, when I decided it would make a painting. I left it sketch like as I thought it made it look more realistic.

New Painting

Just starting a new picture and I am going to try to remember to post pictures as the painting progresses. This is the drawing,for which I used the grid system to transfer the image from a smaller photo. You can see the remains of the grid after erasing as much as possible, the paint should cover the rest.
