Portrait of Anton.
The engineer in me wanting to control the lines and proportions of the face to follow the rules. However, his face had its own planes, and quirks that were, his character.
‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ type colours of treasure.
I used Permanent Madder Deep, with Ultramarine blue for the dark colour. To break the high translucency of the madder and blue, I used Burnt Umber as a contrast. Burnt Sienna and Yellow Ocher for the skin tones, with a hint of rose madder. For the grey, green eyes, I used Cobalt Blue, Indian Red and Chromium Oxide Green. this was used in layers, with Cerulean Blue and Indian Yellow. The rich colours of the hat were Indian Yellow and Alizarin Red.
