Tut's Mask - Left shoulder

It seems the flaps of the nemes are still too wet so I haven't started on the false beard. So I worked on the left shoulder (of the pharaoh), where the necklace starts.

And a little closeup...

Now the nemes headdress is more or less done. Next I'll work on the false beard and necklace.

Tut's Mask - Headdress progressing...

This is where I managed to paint this today. I seem to get used to painting that gold in the shadows... Plenty on hair-thin different-colored scratches that blend into each other when seen from a distance...

Tut's Mask - More Work on the Nemes Headdress

And here is today's work...  I worked some more on the headdress - finished the golden band on the pharaoh's forehead and painted four stripes of the nemes-headdress.

Tut's Mask - Rest of the Cobra

Took me three and a half hours to paint the rest of the Cobra and those few stripes of nemes-headdress. The ancient artists sure had a liking to detail!!

Tut's Mask - the Ear

Today I painted the ear. I may tweak it later, but this was all I had patience for today. Really - not the easiest thing to paint!
