Started. Went wildly odd, with the pose too stiff and the colours too blugh and dull... and so I rubbed it all down and started again.
Ok, so it's not a laughing face, but rather a portrait of a friend's kid. Is it just me, or is it harder when you haven't actually met the kid.
Still a work in progress. Sort of wish I'd worked out a full strong undercoat but hey, it's oils. There's time.
