Malachy Portrait WIP V

I've been working on the hair because I'm tired of the face. Still have some work to do, including highlights, so it will look a little softer and lighter than this at the end.

I think it's nuts how long this is taking me, but it's worth remembering that this is one big baby! The canvas itself is 20" tall and Malchy's head is 17.5" from the chip up!

Thanks Sara. Sorry to keep posting every little step but I had to load the photo for a thread I'm doing at Wet Canvas so I thought I might as well up-date things here as well, since I didn't have anything else to blog about! Can't wait to paint something else! (No offense Malachy!)

Sorry the photo is so awful - I can't use the flash because it shows the grain of the canvas under the paint.
