Tutankhamon's Golden Mask - finished!

And here is the finished painting. Winsor & Newtom oils on finest hand-stretched linen canvas, 29 x 42 cm.

I wish to express my gratitude to the Werner Forman archive for their kind permission to use their photo (taken at the Egyptian Museum) as a reference to this painting. You can visit their website by clicking on the link on the blog.

Almost there with Tut's Mask...

After this there are only two "stripes" of beads left to paint and then painting the background into a uniform color. (It is black, but I mix that myself, no tube black).
