'Malatesta' Continued ...

…Using acrylics I've attempted to create a fine leather, but worn doublet with a golden silk lying over a pair of red hose. I've attempted to build the colour up in repeated coats of glazes.

I feel that the creases would benefit from a slight darkening of the recesses. I am hopeful this would add to the contrast particularly on his trousers.

 Additionally I feel the lining of the sleeves would benefit from a touch more depth to illustrate   this part is almost totally in shade. Shadows on light colours can be challenging in many respects.

Anyhow I am enjoying this project. Do let me know what you think.
