After photographing David, one of the first oil studies. Using John Foster's palette, didn't go as planned, but pulling out colour with a stylus worked over painting highlights and hairs, which is a technique I might use more often. Probably abandoning oils from now on though and going to work acrylics in black and white and render the colour in Photoshop. Need to combine these studies and getting familiar with his face with blues themes, songs, stories and abstractions.
