The other day, I was noticing that I had been spending most of my painting time on sketches. It had actually been a while since I had really laid down some layers on a painting. So, to remedy that, I quickly sketched out Lord Ironbottom here. I really like the textures that one can get with lots of layers, not to mention the vibrancy. I also like how the warms and cools play off each other. At the same time, he rather looks to be a stern kind of fellow and I suspect he’s well out of fighting age. All the same, the monocle is a nice touch!
