Going back to Oz - Doorman 01

Since I missed yesterday, here's another piece for the Oz painting prep...

Well, come in, COMEEEIIIINNN! The doorman to Oz. I really want that green to be crazy saturated, so I did the bulk of the drawing with a dark green pencil. He's a minor character in the piece, so I used a broader pencil technique with him as well, bold strokes to indicate the shading, rather than blends and...

...washes with the a diluted black - though I may add a wash to the underside of the gloves and mustache, but I'll have to see how the paint turns out.

Added to the pile for Paint Day, and on to the next prep!
