Blowzy


Using Titanium white, Indian yellow, yellow ochre, Napthol red, Alizarin crimson, sap green, Pthalo blue, and Van Dyke brown. Phew! I got some color unity(despite the large palette) by painting on top of a layer of wet yellow ochre. This is 7 x 5 inches, oil on hardboard.

Smirk


Somewhat the polar opposite of my last post. This one relies on color shifts to model the shapes. This is 7 x 5 inches, oil on hardboard.

Binary


Occasionally, I try to go back to basics. As much as I love color, the focus here was on drawing and value rendering. The white is titanium and the black is Van Dyke brown. Van Dyke is nice if you want a warmer feel.



The hardboard panel is primed with a few layers of acrylic medium, in case you thought I was  painting on a naked board. This is 7 x 5 inches, oil on hardboard.

Assembled


Flexing some painting muscles. Big brushes, thick paint, broken color. I tried to mix the colors only loosely on the palette for dynamic brush strokes. This is 5 x 7 inches, oil on hardboard.
