Getting much closer to finishing the piece. But I was still playing chicken with Alec Guinness’ face. Shortly after I took this picture I admitted to myself I’d have to deal with the face. I couldn’t fill in all the background and then deal with the face. So after this point, little bit by little bit I worked on that face.
I was pretty much satisfied with the end result, of course. As I said, it took me about six hours to complete the double portrait. But considering I hadn’t done one in a very long time, I felt it was well worth the labor.
