My Grandpa!

I haven't put up any photos showing how the portrait of my gorgeous grandpa is coming along recently (mostly because he's been sitting in my studio at that difficult I'm-not-sure-what-to-tackle-next phase). But in the last couple of days I attacked the background and have gradually worked my way around the canvas again adding detail to his jacket, the wood and finally his face. He's nearly finished but I need to return with fresh eyes tomorrow to spot where I can make further improvements. I have enlarged part of the painting so you can see (hopefully) the difference between one stage to the next. It's subtle, I know, for hours of work - but he's worth it!
