My painting this week began with a formal business portrait. I love the variety of work that I do and welcome the challenge of a traditional oil portrait.
|Stage 2: The underpainting. At this stage I am still using the thin wash of paint with my focus on form, light and shadow.|
|Stage 3: The second layer. While the underpaintng is still wet, I apply the second, thicker layer of paint with every effort to accurately depict his likeness, the correct light, color and shadow. Brush strokes are also important.|
