Oil Painting #2

While I have some free time today, I’ll post the progression of my latest oil painting. I did this one over the course of two 3-hour classes.

A fresh canvas.

The charcoal under-drawing.

First part of tone painting.

Close-up of same.


Refining it with opaque paint.

More refinement.

And … I’m calling it done. I can see where further refinement would help, but I feel like I’m getting the hang of things a little more, so I’ll start a new one next week and incorporate what I’m learning about brush strokes and trusting what I “should” see vs. what I do see.
