This Little Light of Mine :D

Haha well I’m adding more paintings to my work in progress, this painting is of a good friend of mine. We took a series of photos only relying on his lighter as the light source; I chose my favorite one and well painted it 😛 I just used black for this (and a bit of white for the highlights) as I relayed on the canvas for the other tones. Poor guy suffered a burn for the sake of my art, who says art doesn’t come at a cost >:) This will be a series of paintings I feel as I hope to end with the use of colour. I skipped the imprimatura stage as I liked the white of the canvas purely for its tonal value.
