This is acrylic on canvas board of size 30.5cms*25cms.
I also used the acrylic retardent that I bought in Bangalore. Though it didnt help keep the paint wet on the canvas, it did keep the paint on the palette wet for a while.
This was my first portrait and I am happy with the result in terms that there is some appreciable continuity in the skin tones. Also the eyes look good. There is though a huge scope for improvement…lol
Once the face was done, I painted the tunic and headgear really quick in a loose style.

This weeks wde was hosted by Al and he had posted black and white colour pics and had aksed to add colours as one wished. But I couldnt put colours since the store had small tubes of burnt sienna only… all other colours were either 120ml tubes or only in sets of 12….
A good thing I found in that store was drying retardents for acrylics. I will try it when I’m back home the coming weekend.
Rest is good… the weather is wonderful in Bangalore and nice. Love the greenery here…. But also that the place where I’m staying is upmarket….! Wish Delhi was equally greener and had fresher air….
