First Observational Painting

This is the first painting I have done with just observation of a picture, the task here was to take a photo and using visual scaling (which is matching the photo to the size of the canvas) so using my judgement to create the art work.

Initially it was difficult to try and get my mind to adjust what I saw on the photo with the canvas, following the instructions of putting down the black lines first, even if it's just a rough line.  Once done I began laying down the shading as I have done with all the other paintings.

Once done laying over the black base before applying the texture of light grey and following the same steps I had done with the Golum piece.  It turned out ok for a first shot even though there were some parts to the finishing I couldn't be bothered to finish as it was way to hot which just made me lethargic.
