Picking up a brush again



I haven't painted anything in 'the real world' for a while, so I want to see if I can do a few acrylic (and maybe oil) paintings over the holiday period - if I can remember how. Starting with this one which is a portrait rather than a caricature. Here are the stages so far, it may well end up on a fireworks night bonfire - we'll see! Looks at lot worse in photos than in the flesh :(

(It's on canvas, 1m x 50cm - feel free to comment!)

EDIT: Update - just that hand to paint now. Terrible. Still, it's practice which is the point - have to think of another subject to try :)

Quite obviously the great John Cusack (although the third stage looks like John Cusack guest starring in "The Only Way is Essex").

Looking great so far, Neil.
