Oil Study

I’ve started a new series of portraits. This is a quick oil study on paper. There’s some drawing issues that I didn’t resolve, but this was more for my own purposes. I’m trying to streamline and optimize my studio process and find out which steps are requisite and have the highest yield.

Overall I’m pretty happy with how solid and volumetric the modeling turned out — makes me wish I’d spent a little more time getting a proper linear placement before I jumped into the chromatic layers.

  1. Thanks Tara. Really wish I’d spent a little more time getting a good likeness before I started the chromatic layers on this one. I’ll do better on the final painting.
