Mista' J - Painting VII: The string tie

I wanted to get this tricky bit of work out of the way asap--especially after having permanently attached the head. The painting of the string tie was the main contraindication to prematurely attaching the head, but given the minor repositioning undertaken, it was an acceptable risk.

The color of the string tie is inextricably tied to the color of the shirt and vest. In short, there is no canon color, per se. I chose to paint the string tie a vibrant green with an obvious yellow bias. The latter muted the bright green somewhat, and will complement the purple coat nicely. 

NEXT: The coat.
