    You are right Paulo, I need to tighten up the detail, such as the eyes, painting and this is getting better with practice. I will revisit the face when the oils have dried and try out your suggestions. Many thanks for your constructive feedback (y)

    All the blocking in done now so a quick mockup of what he will look like. There was a time, not that long ago, when I would have considered this as finished. Now, it is just the start lol

    You know when you reach a stage where you are happy enough with the face and then try to be clever?............

    Well, I tried to be clever and up the contrast and warm the colour slightly...... it now looks like a clown....

    Strong talk to myself, “don’t try to be clever because you are not”.

    Ahh well, back to the beginning again....

    Knowing when to stop ( and i share your pain) can be the hardest thing to do, I have to keep reminding myself its not a photo in photoshop where you can keep undoing changes !! lol
