Riley Staring Off into the Wild Blue Yonder - Oil - WIP 1 & 2

Here's the underpainting for the painting I'm working on from the sketch I did last week. I did the underpainting in acrylic (this time I used water as a thinner LOL) because I wasn't feeling patient enough to wait for an oil underpainting to dry.

Here's the first stage of the oils.

Pastel Portrait - Finished

I changed the background and am much happier with it now, there was just far too much going on before.

Pastel Portrait - Work in Progress 2

I'm not loving the background in this, my original thought was that the wall angle would add some interest but I decided to axe that and go for a simpler background.
