Just finished this one...of another student, and used a Zorn palette...limiting myself to red, yellow-ocre, black and white...
8"x 6" on acid free matboard...the aim was for speed, essential brushwork and nothing more...loosening up...

This one is just as nice as the other. Very well done.

This turned out great Larry! Was this done on a blue surface?

yes, Marcus...an acid free blue matboard...which was interesting to me as it wouldn't seem such a cool color would be fitting for harmonious flesh tones.

I love Zorn. He was a master of portraits, figures and limited color. He was very popular in his day and I'm glad to see he's becoming known again.
This is a wonderful portrait with two colors, plus the blue ground. Your expert use of the background peeking through in the eyes and as highlights everywhere is excellent. Who would think blue was a good highlight for dark hair? Looking forward to you class and begining to practice on gouache. It's sinking into my head quicker than I thought...
must be the empty spots in the brain:)
Dick Blick is a great resource and ordering online saves me from Boston traffic. If anyone still needs to replenish their gouache, coupons can be had at Retailmenot.com good til the 5th of March.
