WIP - Self portrait

Started straight with a simple brush drawing ... Oil paint on Oil paper size 65 * 50 cm mainly using Winton Study paint and ready made medium from Talens. Should do a bit more all over the painting but let it dry first. Walter

This WIP is really good.

I enjoy the colour change across the face.
Good strong pose.

Well done,
Brad

Re: WIP - Self portrait

I like the subtle colour changes in the flesh tones and for me it gives it form.

I also like the background colours. Backgrounds are something I struggle with.

keep at it. Good work.

Great to see your face, Walter! Very nicely done- even to this stage.

Re: WIP - Self portrait

Thanks for the comments, using fairly thick paint and loaded brushes doing the second layer, using hog hair filbert number 2,3 and 8. Some more to go. Walter.

Re: WIP - Self portrait

Applied a very thin layer of linseed oil all over the support and applied another layer of paint all over the painting. Will let it dry for another week and then try to finish it with some details. Walter

Thanks for the comments, some more work done on this and still need to work a bit on the shadow side ... I think. Walter.

Re: WIP - Self portrait

I would live to see your reference photo, if you are using one. I really like the way you are using color in your skin tones. And everywhere else...just great!
