"100 Faces, No. 62"

4 x 4"
oil on masonite
sold

Always a challenge - I painted a dark tone on the white gessoed board, then subtracted from that with a brush dipped in paint thinner. Some mid-tones were added in the end.

Unbelievably fantastic! You're well into that 10,000 hour theory from the "Outliers". Practice obviously makes more than perfect. This is wonderful! Thank you for your daily presentations.
