A new year a new portrait

Not exactly a "new" portrait as I have had the colour study, photos and canvas, ready to go, for a while now. I finally had time to get started. As usual I start with a deliberately rough charcoal sketch made using a bamboo stick to give me a loose guide.

Started adding a little colour.
Mapping in a few rough details.

Back to charcoal so I could rough in some features and move things around using charcoal and putty rubber.
A final layer of paint and it's time to call it a day.
