A portrait of my grandfather. Yet another palimpsest portrait... you can see drawings of him when he was younger if you look closely at the forehead.

Wow. I love that you put younger images of him in the forehead. That's such an interesting idea. Anyways, this is very good. Adding to favs :D

Thanks very much. There is another portrait of him slightly older in the curtains, but it isn't showing up yet. As the painting dries, it thins, and I find that the marker underneath comes through more strongly. Thanks! :)

I think I can see him in the curtains. I hope to see it some time this week.

I don't think you can see the one in the curtains... I really doubt it. It's barely able to be seen even in person. As the oil dries, it will become more apparent. The ones in the forehead are able to be seen a lot.

I must be imagining it then. if it's actually in the place I think it is, that is crazy. we will see.

I'm not into green but some of the facial colors are great! Nice! I had to look up palimpsest again! Keep feeding it to me and I will actually learn what it means someday!

It does have a green tone to it, but it is also very blue (which doesn't show up so much in the photo). Thanks :)

In verdaccio the green underpainting is supposed to bring out a porcelain quality to the skin. I only tried it once and I didn't see any porcelain? Sometimes pictures can be deceiving. That not being fond of green is only a peeve of mine, doesn't mean anything. A nice portrait and I like what you did with the illusions on the forehead.
