Almost Completed Oil Portrait of XenaWednesday, October 8th, 2014
This is a photo of the Oil portrait when I’m almost finished with the painting of Xena, just a few more tweaks are needed here. Once completed, I will leave it to dry for some time and then scan the painting. The new style oils are painted without any drying times. I think it’s nice when I paint the highlights and the brush picks up just enough paint underneath to make it all look like it belongs there, it looks so natural. But it is very important to paint the base correctly, otherwise the painting can end up looking like a mess.
