    I've recently decided to try my hand at painting a flat figure,it's something I've thought about for a while now and when I recently saw a picture of the best of show at Kulmbach a flat figure of Charles Chaplin from the film 'The Kid'i knew this was the piece I wanted to try my hand it.
    I decided early on that I did'nt want to do a black and white version but instead paint it in colour,today I have made a start and I'm reasonably happy with where I'm at and the result so far.
    I have painted this exactly as I do my busts,acrylic undercoats finished with oils.
    I plan another session with more lighting to be added before moving on to the kid.
