Mystery Portrait-Verdaccio Stage 2

I have repainted the mystery man.  Although you may not be able to tell it, he has been completely recovered with paint. If you look closely, you may still see a bit of the ink pen showing through beneath the paint.  I like the look!  It's almost as though we're can see deep veins under his skin! The reason you see marks is because I have used quite a bit of Flake white, which unlike Titanium White is very transparent.  It's also got a bunch of warnings, (cancer, etc) due to the extremely high content of lead.  I'm surprised they sell it over the counter!  

After this dries, I'll begin to add colour.
