24/08: BIRTHDAY BOY (AKA DEL BOY) MORE PROGRESS

I managed to get quite a lot more done to this portrait this afternoon - here I've been adding colour/texture to the rather 'moth-eaten' looking sheepskin coat (it looks different colours in every photo so I've made it a mottley mixture of all of them)!  I wanted to get the bright red jumper coloured in to show how much stronger all the other colours need to be to pull it together


Then I started to strengthen some of the skintones and this is how I left it this evening.  Its getting a bit gloomy to take photos - we've had very strange weather today - blustery showers lasting maybe 10 minutes then warm but windy weather ... we've lost lots of damsons and apples off the trees in our garden so it feels more like Autumn than Summer

Wow, you're off to a great start! I hope it continues to go well. Aren't portraits a whole new ball game? I've just started on them and having fun. (most days...)
