Mr. Purrington revisited -- and process

I decided to finish off this one from last November.

I was interested in a different lighting set-up than my first version. I built a quick maquette out of sculpey and lit it various ways.
The piece began with a ballpoint pen thumbnail scratched out in my sketchbook.






Here is the underpainting -- messy acrylics.



The final of him done in mixed media.
