New Painting in Progress

Recently I started a new painting. It’s a portrait study of Melanie Laurent from the movie ‘Inglorious Basterds’. I’ve been using it as a chance to practice some new techniques while not really concentrating too hard on subject matter. I was more interested in getting tones correct to show form of the face and sharpening my observational skills in terms of colours as well as to improve technical painting skills.

Pretty happy so far, hopefully I can apply what I’ve learnt from this work onto future paintings that are a bit more imaginative.

Here’s a detail shot of the eyes.
