Selfridge's XII (Florian Dupont)



Florian Dupont, with a big head. :)

This is the twelfth (of fifteen) in a series of practice pieces painted in Manga Studio 5, based on screen caps from season two of 'Mr Selfridge'.

The violin almost killed me on this one. I had to alter the angle since my gesture drawing changed the pose slightly. Much torture ensued. For the painting, I used burnt sienna/intense orange on a tan ground for the imprimatura, and a darker burnt sienna for the underpainting.

I feel like this might have turned out a bit too 'tight', probably because I changed the pressure settings on my brushes. I'd like to try a more painterly approach with bolder brushstrokes, kinda like the flowers in the background.
