My Day - Part 2

So once I have finished sanding in the darks of the figure (things do look a little blotchy at this stage), I re-draw with white pencil areas I may have lost. Now I am ready to start painting. All the tone in the portrait thus far has been created using sandpaper. However to get the painting looking smoother and to get the detail I have to use oils. I would say I am about one third of the way through the portrait now.

Sorry about the bad pic, the weather is miserable and the light in my studio not too good today - anyway at least you get the idea.
