I’m indulging in some fan-girling, and started an oil portrait of Sherlock, the 21st century version as played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

Next steps: refine the skin and begin to suggest some colour. This is painted with Torrit Grey, a special colour from Gamblin.

You’ve really caught his intensity–love it!
Off to a flying start. Byronic without being gooey, No small feat! My prediction: Dude will eventually buy it. (I sound breathless because I just ran upstairs 😉
