Perfection and Necroamoria 7

A strangely tiring day painting Perfection and Necroamoria. I normally paint in a opaque underpainting then a single glaze. I think it's most efficient way to paint, and I think that one glaze hue, one underpainting hue, and an imprimatura (wash) hue are the most colours that can be detected. In perfect circumstances the underpainting is very smooth and detailed but sometimes a second sub-glazing layer in underpainting colours is useful and that is what I'm working on now. I remain unhappy with the embracing octopus part though. That will ideally need another correction layer but time is against me.

Now I'll start a new drawing for I'll Be Here For You. I have decided to paint it properly.
