Thread and Paint and Wood

Three more little pieces to add to the mix...



And a preliminary graphite drawing on wood. Not sure how this will be painted - considering perhaps glazes of oil to allow most of the linework to show through, with heavier paint in the background and shirt. I think his suit will be constructed of paper or cloth...
As you can see, I'm still working out the details. Time to do a color study!



UPDATE:
Color Study!
I think I might add some blue birds flying around his head... Sparrows?
I know this is just a rough draft, but I feel like it needs more.

Indeed he did, although I tried to make him look a little older and more worn...
