13/02: CORRALEJO TRAMP FINISHED (for the moment)

I've spent the morning working on the beard and darkening his jacket and think he is about finished so I've given the portrait a light spray with fixative which will give some UV protection and also will prevent the dreaded 'wax bloom' in areas where I've applied heavy cover (coat mainly). 

The fixative will also give a tad more 'tooth' so if I do decide to work more on the beard for instance I will be able to add more whiskers.  

I've cropped it slightly to fit this 18" x 14" mount - aperture size is 14" x 10"

Just going to start a new subject now ... another character I met in Corralejo and who has a lovely smiley face

It always amazes me that you can do these so quickly in CP and have them look so beautiful! The detail and color are so perfect.
