This is my my second attempt at oil painting, It is painted from a photo of my grandfather that was on the front page of the Hampshire Gazette ( my local newspaper in easthampton MA ) The photo it from that years veterans day parade. He participates in the parade every year. He is very proud of his military involvement in the korean war. I am a new artist, never picked up a pencil to draw before Jan 2012, I took a drawing class...loved it, so here I am trying to teach myself to oil paint. I don't really know any painters so help would be much appreciated. Thanks for looking, thanks even more if you comment!
MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I would honestly like any comment on any type of problem I may have, color, composition, brushwork, contrast, likeness, anything!
