Forgot to post the some of the steps for recent portrait…

Final portrait will be 24×30″ oil on linen canvas…here is head study done on linen on board…first is the chosen photo (this is a posthumous portrait so  the photo is a tiny section from a snapshot taken at  some event dinner.. part of a group shot and only included his head (top of necktie up) and.not exactly high res! or even focus!) next is the charcoal drawing which was fixed and, next,  i began to apply oil paint
