Young Arab

A little more work done on this one... think I will change the background colour next, as I really don't like it as it is! Not sure what I'll change it to though...

I have decided to start another Arab painting too, this time of a Crabbet youngster. I plan to attempt a grisaille for the first time which, in simple terms, involves a detailed single tone underpainting which coloured glazes go over the top. I haven't worked in black and white since I was at school so thought I would practice some pencil sketches before I put paint to canvas!
