This is great again, did I say great? I meant excellent.

hahaha xD focusing back on the pencil for now. I devised some exercises to improve colour recognition while i've been on hiatus.
briefly, its just a case of opening up a photo in photoshop. focus on a colour like on a grass or tree. think what it is, where it is in terms of value and chroma scale, then pick it on the colour wheel and paint where you was looking. if it's correct it will be invisible to near invisible as if you didn't apply colour. Hope you well bro, looking forward to more from you!

sounds complex to my mind right now, im focusing on line, but when i try more experiments i will look at your technique. its an excellent portrait.

Wow dude, nice. I wouldn't even know where to start with traditional painting!

Thanks bro! you'll be happy to know your skills (almost directly translate over with oils from digital) more so if you work on one layer only in your studies. a lot of it is getting use to the process of working with it. other than that it's simply a case of your drawing ability and recognising colours.
unfortunately, my skills at backgrounds lack in comparison in my skill for portraits, so they come out shit, in both digital and oils. so focusing on them more. might focus more on practicing drawing them with pencil and paper rendering.

Definitely. The more you practice your weaknesses, the less you have!
