More on Boson
I've worked more on Boson's portrait. My sister critiqued the painting-in-progress and suggested that the eyes didn't match. I have tried to correct that but see now that I haven't quite succeeded. I worked on his right eye but see now that I need to do more on his left eye also. The slants don't match.
I can also see that I need to work on the lower chest. And the fringe of white hair over they gray looks too rough.
My sisteer also suggested that a background reminiscent of the old Wuthering Heights movie would be appropriate for this "Heathclissesque" portrait. So, I've tried to achieve that.
I'm contemplating a lightning bolt. It's a bit corny and perhaps over-dramatic. But that's the kind of thing I like.
