Andre Hazes freehand airbush portrait

Andre Hazes is a Dutch balad singer who had a powerful, tremelous voice. Sadly, he passed away a few years ago. I am currently working on a freehand airbrush portrait of him, the sequence of which is shown on this page - newest update on top. The airbrush I used is an Iwata HP-BH and the paint is Inspire H2O. The surface is a 30 x 40 cm linen structure paper. I haven't got as much time as I would like to have to work on the portrait, so progress may be somewhat slow. Had I had the time, I could probably finish it in one or two days, working continuously.
