Painting my Dad: Part 2

Well using Siccative really does help dry out the oil paint! The day after I'd done the first blocking in, I had a look at the outlines and decided his body looked a bit on the large size.  Needless to say, my dad doesn't appreciate looking unnecessarily large in the stomach...

Re-drawing various parts with oil paint

Blocking in the general colours and shadows
The sky looks quite blue in this picture, but it will eventually even out as the rest of the painting is built up.  I think it probably needs about 5 more layers and then it will start to look more done.
