Almost Completed Oil Portrait of Xena

Wednesday, 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.

Oil Portrait of Xena in Progress

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

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

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???
