Luke's Portrait, step 1

This is the first step of the actual painting but there are a number of steps before the painting ever begins. First the photography, then the design, which includes cropping, a color study and a value sketch (the lights and darks in the painting). The final step before actually painting is the drawing. I draw the portrait on tracing paper, layer over layer until it looks accurate.
