I am really getting into this painting. The new Atelier Acrylics are great to work with, but you have to be careful not to get paint in the wrong spot. With regular acrylics you can just wipe off the dried layer below, but with these you also may take off the paint below too.

I have just let myself go with the paints here. I know this painting has a lot more to go, but I really want to keep it rough. I don't want to be too detailed. I have to be careful not to get too specific, but to leave it to the viewer's eye.
His glasses right now are just put in to give me an idea of what is going on with his face. They will get more detail and I think they are a very important part of this painting.
What will make this painting is that I think something needs to be dangling from his hand. I have a few ideas.

This is the second day in. Still working with the Atelier Acrylics which can be great or....
This is the second and a half day in. Working completely in a style I have not used before so it will be interesting how it all works out.
