Re: Portrait - V. Havel

hello
excellent finish - the likeness , and your understanding of Mr Greene's palette/method .

may i suggest using a tortillon/stump to soften the edges of the .3 burnt sienna ( .3 mars violet ? )
on the hand and neck at the transition of flesh from dark to light ... ?
> i understand how the marks relate to those of the clothing , so ,
it's totally your decision .

Ed

Re: Portrait - V. Havel

Beautiful and a great likeness! The only thing that is distracting me is the heavy dark line around the left side of the face, other than that it is stunning!
