Wet Paint, In The Studio...

8x6, Oil/Linen Panel

This is a small portrait/study of my friend Anthony. I used a photo I took of him the other afternoon after spending time together, sitting and talking in my backyard. Our time together gave me a lot of information, both visual and personality-wise, that enhanced my use of the reference photo. I used bristle brushes to lay the painting in and sables to build and define his image.

Thanks, Liz! It was a good opportunity to find color and light in the flesh tones..
