This is the second progress, blocking in stage of Viruta. After I filled the entire canvas with a thin layer of premixed orange oil paint I started to block in parts of the background and dog. I will be using a very limited color-palette the entire time to create color harmony, the first toned canvas will also help with that. View Stage 1 and Stage 3 of Virta’s portrait!
