finished or very nearly

Thanks to Charles Freyberg for posing. This is an initial study for a cover of Delacroix's Liberty I am beginning work on - the fallen sans-culotte,  a Ginsbergoid poet of protest going commando in a kaftan? felled by a tear gas canister maybe.

I'll add more images here as I finish the painting

slightly more paint, but most of top layer not there yet

bare as bones underpainting - still room to stuff a few more landmarks in;)
