Re: berna - monotone oil study

Nicely done ! The edge quality of that whole plane of the nose ( the top) could vary - have a sharp moment like you do and perhaps some that are slightly softer ? Just a small thought - love this - it looks like you did it in a bravado manner and fast ( and got it all so right) !

Lovely! I take it you're a fan of Richard Schmid? I've seen him employ this technique a lot, using only transparent oxide red and turpentine.
