I really enjoy the November issue with great realist artists and the two step by step exercises
I am doing a copy of Martinez self-portrait, have cropped the image to fit 30x40cm canvas.
I've done the sketch directly from the magazine, but as I have seen some inaccuracy, I have printed it out in order to be able to see well proportions .
I use alla prima method, in this moment the situation is this:
I'll post other images as I go on
No more alla prima, I had to wait some days to make the colors dry. Also as from the magazine I could not figure out the color shifts, I went to Martinez site to see the original, and in this way I was able to finish the portrait.

very nice!!! You got a nice intensity in the eyes...
nice study of his portrait, if you ever have an opportunity to take one of his workshops, do it ... he is an excellent instructor .
This is beautiful and intense! I love it!
