Skull Number 3 (repost)

Happy Halloween! This is a repost from May, but I thought it fitting for the day...

Skull No 3,  oil on linen, 5" X 7", 2013
$125 USD framed

Palette and lighting set up

Initial block in. If you squint, you can see that I've established three main value groups. I started with the darkest value for the shadow part of the skull (which you can see in the picture above this one)-- which is also my middle value in this case.

I've now filled in the lightest values. While there will be lots of refinement in the drawing, and the addition of a few darker darks and highlights, the main value structure is complete.
