Working on Tj’s Oil Portrait

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

I have been working on Tj’s little oil portrait for two more days now. I will complete the painting tomorrow and scan it next day, to avoid potential shiny and wet areas on my scanned image. I have used a very limited palette for this little creation to keep things simple and in harmony. The reference photo is quite blurry so I’m doing the best I can here.

Initial Sketch of Newfoundland dogs in Oil

Thursday, March 5th, 2015

Yesterday I created the initial sketch of the two Newfoundland dogs “Nalle & Azlan” in oil. I usually start on next portrait in line while I still paint on the previous one, just to be prepared. I just love to paint the sketch with acrylics! That is something I recently started with and will always do from now on. Acrylics make such nice effects. Now I don’t do anything special on these kind of paintings, since the canvas will be completely covered with oils anyway… but the possibilities really are endless. I will continue with TJ’s portrait tomorrow.

Next Stage of TJ in Oils

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

I’m way behind with both my blog and portraits lately. I have ben quite busy with other things which also must be done in the Studio, but decided to put some larger projects on hold to continue with painting and drawing for a while. I don’t like to have a long waiting list! So, this is how far I’ve got on Tj’s oil portrait. I hope you like it! I will soon also update the client-list here.
