Started some more work on the excellent figure from Lincoln Wright's company Wrapped in Bacon
and it is a pleasure to paint! I started with the eyes after the base coat. I just cannot get the face correct if the eyes are not done first. I don't have any secretes, just a thin wash of sepia extra then slow touch ups to get the iris centered and then off white to get the "whites" back. The rest of the skin will be oil paint, I love the slow dry time and the extra thin layers that can be achieved. The clothing will be all in acrylics with just a hint of oils for shading some of the dark shadows.
