I have made a lot of progress on the figure in just a few days of working on him. The way the final colors of the clothing and face are established would probably make a seasoned painter cringe. Each part is approached almost as an experiment and is subject to drastic change at any time. Though areas like the face may look finished I still have not arrived at what the face will look like. I'm still searching for that middle ground to where all the detail is there, but where it still retains a painterly look.
