Commission: portrait

Working on another commission pic, this time more of a portrait of a character. He’s the owner of the garden in this other pic, and he’s busy planting things.

That was the blocked-in colors. It got the thumbs up from my commissioner, so I went on with some more shading.

Painted all with the oil pastel brushes in Painter, with minimal blending. The trouble is, the highlights are too red and the shadows are too green and blue. Like, Frankenstein. (Frank-en-shtieen?)

I’m shelving it for the night because I can’t see how to fix it.
