Reference Study #05

Alright, so it's been a few weeks since I did one of these, and with other commitments and the like popping up, this DP was drawn out, to say the least. Anyway, I'm fairly happy with the end result, even though I felt like I was rushing myself at the start for some reason.
So, James Stewart was the subject of choice this time 'round. I was wanting to do one of him for awhile, so it was great to finally do this image. I'm a huge fan of the Alfred Hitchcock film Rear Window which stars James (and Grace Kelly who I've previously painted).
I'll probably start trying to work colour into my works now since I feel a bit more confident with the progress that I've made so far. Gotta keep pushing myself!
