Caricature of Tom Waits - day2

Well I still have a ways to go. I'm learning a lot. To blend and soften edges I've been scumbling with a dry brush (basically rubbing a brush over recently applied paint to diffuse the area and create a gradation or soft edge) I've also been applying glazes. (Thin areas of paint that let the paint below it show through. Glazing is a way to keep your original shapes but slightly change the color and the contrast. As you glaze the contrast decreases a bit.
