“ Dave~ with a story here ~ from life “

This is Dave..... he came to sit for me.... never modeled before... it was an experience. I had to make. Coffee twice for him as he kept falling asleep.. lol
He kept talking and losing the pose.. In Other words he kept moving around. Ha! But I still captured him.. I paid him to sit.. a great amount.. then He wanted to buy it from me.. for the same amount.. not sure if that made sense. But I didn’t do it.
I call this another study .

Do I see raw umber, burnt umber, something red, T-white, black, and is that a green or is it a mix? Oh, and Naples yellow.

This is an excellent portrait!
And you were right not to sell (or should I say 'give it away') to the sitter.

We paint to earn some respect, but in the first place, we ourselves have to respect our work.

Re: “ Dave~ with a story here ~ from life “

Fantastic portrait, Carol! It has a positively modern and professional presence to it.

It's a shame that it's so difficult for sitters to be more engaged these days, but you've made great work from the process.

I'd like to make note of the skill shown in placing the eye brows in conjuction with the eye socket and nose planes, and the edge work around the eye corners. Love it!

I used flake white in this as it’s very transparent ( great fir China and skin ) I also use titanium white mix with zinc white... at times! The green is a mix ( black and ochre) no naples yellow in this..
