after Eakins

Learning painting portraits. This portrait painting practice is a detail of an Old Master Eakins painting. It is almost grisaille except there is a little bit of Unbleached Titanium White mixed to greys.

Oil on wood, 15x22 cm



Thanks for looking!

Re: after Eakins

Learning from a Master like Eakins is a great direction and working in B/W helps a full understanding of value and drawing! Do you plan to add color?

It would be helpful to see the source image- you may have more comments if it's handy-

Re: after Eakins

Thanks Ken for commenting. I'd like to add color over this layer but I'm not very familiar with color portraits so I'm afraid i ruin everything what I have now. Maybe I practice more and then come back to this one.

Re: after Eakins

Your handling of the brush is good, so no reason why you should not progress to colour.
