Mista' J - Painting V: Face 2

The face, as it turns out, will be a 4-step process. . . 

Step 2. I stained the eyes bloodshot, and "outlined" the face in black, methodically feathering the black into the white primer coat. This effectively acts as a foundational grisaille for what is to follow in Step 3.

I then permanently attached the head to the torso. This will allow me to control the lighting of the face during the painting of the "whiteface". . .
