I just started an portrait in oil. I have never done a "dry" painting before. I was wondering if you guys could give me some pointers to doing this. I tried to create a mattte look by forming the oval with the fade at the bottom and lighter grey at the top. I have never done any kind of "wash" painting. Any help will be appreciated. Btw, this is my grandfather, who passed away last month. It's a long way from being finished.
