Next step on Max

So now I’ve darkened the outside with blue/black and done some corrections to the markings on the forehead. I have also darkened the outline of the subject as I thought the centre of the painting was a bit dull. I now have a good likeness of Max and unless I get a bit carried away (it happens) I should end up with something quite presentable. When everything is dry, which should be overnight, I can sit down tomorrow and do some serious decorating with my 0000 brush and some colour. As mentioned, Cerulean blue is an option but what about gold?. If Gold is the choice then I will first have to use white as gold on black is too dark. Gold on white is nice and bright. Keep watching
