Glazing Over

I have sung the praises of alla prima painting on this site, but this oil portrait, for a change, is an attempt to work up a painting using more traditional techniques.

I set in a warm pink ochre ground, did a grisaille underpainting, then added (fairly opaque!) layers, finishing with a glaze.

As with the other pictures this is based on a short 15 min life drawing.
