Handlebar moustache

This painting was started during a painting demonstration I did for an arts group. The pictures below shows some of the construction. I love Ken's white hair and moustache and the fact that he collects old vehicles.

Roughed in shapes

Added dark shadows, refined shapes
Added shirt texture, refined shapes, decided to go with just trees in the background (not trees and mountains).
Then added purple to shirt, made sky a light purple (too gloomy) went back to a light blue/purple sky. Assured myself that I had a value ration of about 60/30/10 (medium, dark, light).
