From my POV the way the miniature was primed, I already like it and I think there is really no need to paint it completely. Just some elements like the lips, the hair, the coat and the base would  make an awesome contrast.


You're probably right, but I've already progressed way past this stage. :blush:  I started this some time ago and these pictures go up through ... the beginning of October, I think.

So yeah, I did some more work on him, laying in some straight Carbon Black where I planned to paint silver and a little creamy ivory here and there, mixd from Titanium White and Yellow Ochre and shaded with the addition of a little Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber.








I laid in some straight Red Iron Oxide, shading it with a little transparent violet mixed from Red Iron Oxide, Ultramarine Blue, and Quinacridone Magenta.

Lots of shading in the reds here, with glazes of deep transparent Quinacridone Magenta to brighten it and violet mixes including Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Umber in the shadows.


I also did a little work on his hair.


I find reds look richest when they don't have any highlights at all -- Or rather, when the highlight is as pure a red as one can manage and the shadows only go darker.

Then I added highlights mixed from a subtle peach tone which included Yellow Ochre, Quinacridone Crimson, and Titanium White.








What about what I just said about reds not using highlights? you may justly ask.


Welp, this lets me put in what will be some more subtle highlights when in a minute I glaze over all the reds with pure Quinacridone Crimson:
