Monochrome oil portrait.




This was an experiment to see if I could do a monochromatic oil sketch in under an hour. It really did look fine at 30 minutes. I fiddled with it another half hour, though and have fiddled further since I took the photo. (Love the alliteration.) I'm thinking I want to do many, many of these. Pretty fun stuff.

Susan, A friend that does oils does some wiping out when she does monochromatic paintings. Have you tried that? Maybe on the cheek area? It gives a nice smooth effect like you have on their faces. These two sketches are great. Congrats on a good start.
