It's been a while since I've had time to spend painting. Just spent a few hours laying ground for my newest painting. A portrait of my grandpa. Problem is, most of the pictures I have are small, or at odd angles, or both. I chose one, and blew it up a bit. Here is what is done so far, and the blown up snippit of what I have done so far. (Keep in mind, I only have about 3 hours of work into this).

Mainly, I'm having issues with the mouth. In doing my underpainting, I managed to cover up most of my grid lines. However, I'm certain I can get the shape right. I am not, however, confident in how to go about getting the teeth to look good.

Whatever you see that needs to be changed, even if it is seemingly obvious... Please do mention it. I want this portrait to be perfect. :)

He's looking a bit like Mr. Rodgers, so far. Can't wait to get off work and work on him!
