I wish I could say I am finished Bud’s portrait, but the reality is I still have a long, long way to go before I can say it is completed. I am at a point however, where I am willing to show it to you and hope you can see where I am going with it despite its very unfinished state.
If you have seen my previous posts on this you will know I used various photos to come up with this portrait. The hard bit is doing this in colour without a colour photograph to go by. I think for the face I will have to take a photo of myself and then try to use that as an aid to colouring when it comes to the finer details. I will also have to see if I can find colour reference material for the uniform.
