I am guessing that this portrait is for his partner so was channeling the smoldering eyes of Antonio Banderas. I am drawing this using Procreate on the iPad. I have a way to go before it is finished.
Drawing in tones of grey allows me to develop the painting in careful stages. Here I am looking at acurate drawing and values (light to shadow relationship). I will then paint this onto the the black and red on the canvas then overpaint it in mainly transparent colour resulting in a glowing colour.
