6 x 6"
oil on panel
A new addition to my ongoing series BUST-ED, and slightly larger than the usual 4" square - this particular face persuaded me to try something different. I painted a brown/black (oil) over the white ground and proceeded to bring out the highlights by removing the dark with my brush dipped in Gamsol. It took a while to get used to how to use the brush, wet, dry, scrubbed, washed, etc. Tricky.
Near the completion, I added a slight warm-grey into areas as well. I love it.
