Painting Grandad

I often find with painting that there's a point I reach part way through the process where I'm tempted to stop. I get to the stage where the essence of the person, object or scene I'm painting has come through enough that it is recognizable as it is. This can often signify a time where you need to slow down and be careful that you don't over work it too.
I am at that point with this painting of my Grandad, but I think I will push forward.
Lots more layering and tidying up to go, but he's starting to show through. Quite funny really!
