A study of David from one of the reference photos I took. I attempted to use an oil technique used by John Foster, which involves a palette of Pthalo Blue, Raw and Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna and Titanium White. It kind of worked at first in the sketching stages, but I think this one got a bit muddy. I ended up adding some extra glazes in Photoshop to finish it. Oil is still well over my head, I might stick to monochrome and digital colouring to be safe, as I am a retard when it comes to mixing.
