Ammit Portrait



Medium: Oil on primed watercolour paper
Description: This is my first completed oil painting. I chose the ancient Egyptian goddess Ammit (or Ammut) as my subject due to my love of mythology and fantasy, especially chimera-type creatures.

I tried using more broad brushstrokes, and avoided adding a lot of fine detail. I used a relatively limited palette (about 9 colours, maybe 10), and utilized a lot of colour mixing.

I'm very excited to continue oil painting!

Re: Ammit Portrait

Congrats on your first oil ! Good start!

Using large brushes in the beginning of a painting is usually a good idea but there is place for small brushes also. Trying to make a large brush do everything is limiting. A tool for every job.

And then there is pointillism. Not a large brush to be seen.

Thank you very much for the advice, sir! For this painting, I intended to keep it looser, but for my future projects I will plan to use more fine brushes. Once again, thank you!
