Larger figure, work in progress

This is the first layer of paint for the larger Trying to contain the Anger close up. I start with a light drawing of the figure and the adjustments I usually do in pencil but with this, I took a brush with thinned burnt umber and adjusted some of the face and then I put in the shadows. This is the layer after that. I wanted a dark background for this. Usually, I don’t think about it until I do 2 or 3 layers. So slightly different approach. Now, I fiddle more with the face and shadows and getting the arms to look like arms and…..on and on. I’ll post the progress here 30″ x 30″ or  app. 76 cm x 76 cm
