Oil Sketches from Life
Here are 4 oil portraits from the last week. The top 2 are the same model, same day, about 45 minutes each. Bottom 2 are the same model, different poses, 30 minutes each. There's never time for small details in these quick studies but they bring out the best in me. I never thought I could paint the bottom pose in 30 min. (with hat, glasses, patterned shirt)!
