A second attempt with this amazing actor using just two colours in acrylic – Payne’s Gray and Titanium White. I always begin with the eyes as for me they are the windows of the soul and if they look right and I can capture the essence of the person, then the rest will surely follow and I can continue in the knowledge that at least if the eyes are right the rest will usually turn out how I want it. However, that really isn’t how it works out as I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to getting a face right, or nearly right. I used a number 10 and 8 round brush. A large flat, a small rigger and a small detail brush.
