Oil Portrait of Xena in Progress

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

This is the initial sketching stage of Tervueren Xena in oils, new style oil. I usually sketch with two colors and continue with the painting the next day as I don’t need drying times. Next post in this blog will show a photo when the painting is almost completed.

Noel in Progress

So, as I got some feedback I made some changes to the portrait of Noel. The colors are not 100% accurate on the photos I took in my Studio, since they change depending lightening conditions in the room. More accurate colors will be seen on the final scan once the last progress image has been approved. I painted the head much more narrow and added some grey fur to make her look older than she looked before. Feedback???

Oil Portrait of Noel in Progress

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

The portrait of Noel in oils is almost completed, I still have some minor changes to do though. The right ear, top head and left side nose needs some correction. As I only have old photos of Noel (which aren’t digital), they aren’t clear enough for a detailed painting in oil. Therefor I’m looking at other photos to see detail and correct values for a nose without grey. He is looking very young now without any grey at all and I need some feedback from the client once I have “completed” the painting.
